This evening I’ll be making a pumpkin lantern and I’m determined to keep waste to a minimum.
Turns out there are a lot of things you can do with pumpkin: bread, cake, pie, soup and filo parcels (which I’ll be having a go at) to name just a few. The seeds can be dried and used in decorative ways, but I think I’ll be roasting the seeds so they can be eaten too.
The empty pumpkin carcase can be safely composted provided any candles, etc. are removed from within.
Happy Halloween and let me know what you do with your leftover pumpkin!
