Only 1 in 12 people cook their pumpkin at Halloween. Although carving pumpkins can have a reputation for not being the tastiest, if you cook them properly they can be a real treat. Plus, they are a great source of vitamins A and C, iron and riboflavin.
Celebrate the autumn in culinary style with this easy and delicious vegan pasta sauce recipe! Pumpkin and squash are a great way keep dinners healthy and to make a thick sauce without having to use cheese or cream.
This BBC Good Food pumpkin pie is an absolute classic traditional American dessert. Perfect as a treat with a hot chocolate after long autumn walks.
This is truly ideal for Halloween. How often do we scoop and hollow out those pumpkins and then discard all that yummy flesh? This Jamie Oliver recipe makes a wonderful lightly spiced pumpkin soup that is warming and flavoursome.
Roasting pumpkin really brings out the flavour. Give these tasty wedges a go!
Sometimes, we can’t save ’em all! If you haven’t managed to eat all your pumpkin, don’t throw it away! You can compost it at home, or if your local area has a food waste collection you can put it in there.
Please don’t leave out for wildlife as pumpkins can make some creatures, such as hedgehogs, ill.
