It’s that time of year again – the one where you get unbearable arm cramp from the carving of intricate designs into a big smelly pumpkin. Yes, Halloween. And yes I said smelly.
It’s fair to say I’m not a big fan of pumpkin, at all. I think it harks back to an unfortunate incident that involved a pumpkin (in place of a watermelon, the shop was all sold out) and a toxic mixture of vodka, cider, lager, schnapps and many other unidentifiable alcoholic beverages…along with a furry moustache. It was called “drinking through the bumhole” and we’ll end that story there but I’m pretty sure you know how it ends.
That said this year, in the interest of being frugal I thought I would try doing something with the pumpkin innards that normally just get thrown in the bin. Honestly they gross me out. After considerable research it turns out there are a million and one ways to serve up a pumpkin and today I am sharing my Top 10 ways with pumpkins.
I might have changed my mind. I think the best option there is No 10 because I don’t have to eat it, but don’t let me put you off. I still think these look great recipes for using up your pumpkin leftovers. Let me know if you try any!
