Too Many Pumpkins?

Make the most of Halloween and your pumpkins this year! Most only buy this wonderful fruit (yes, it’s a fruit) for one day every year, but there’s so much to get out of it - here’s a few of our favourite ideas:


Beer me… from a pumpkin

Prepare the pumpkin as you would if you were carving it (cut out a lid, empty the contents), fill the bowl shaped pumpkin with ice. Behold, a Halloween themed beer cooler!

  • If you have pumpkins already carved, rest a glass bowl inside and use that to hold the ice.

Ultimate seasonal snacks

Never throw away the pumpkin seeds! Clean them off in the sink and roast them with olive oil, seasoning and chilli flakes to create a healthy, full-flavoured snack.

  • Enjoy as they are or sprinkle onto a salad or roasted veggies for extra crunch.

The possibilities are endless...

When it comes to inside a pumpkin. Pies, breakfast muffins, roasted veggies, soup and more. It’s time to get creative in the kitchen!
