Pumpkin SVG Usage
Unlike the decorative ones, edible pumpkins are used as food. After heat treatment, boiled or baked pumpkin is very well assimilated by the body and is widely used even for children’s and dietetic food. Also well used for salads and side dishes.
Undivided pumpkins have been preserved for a long time, so they have been used in farms for a long time. There are a lot of old dishes of Russian cuisine, including pumpkin. In the XVII century, in Charles Perrault’s fairy tale “Cinderella” the fairy made a carriage of pumpkin as a product, which is always available in the kitchen, even the poorest.
Pumpkin seeds are used as medicinal raw materials – mature, cleaned of pericarp residues and dried seeds without heating. They are dried outdoors under canopies or in well-ventilated attics with a thin layer of spillage. If the drying rules are not followed, they become dark, mouldy and odourless. Use pumpkin seeds as an anti-white agent against bandworm worms.
In Central Asia, pumpkins are used to make beverage vessels and cages for small singing birds.
