What’s Halloween without pumpkins? Whether you’re concocting treats or giving free rein to your inner artist, take a look at our tips.
2 types of pumpkins, 2 different uses
Their sweeter flesh and smaller size mean they’re perfect for cooking…and they also make lovely decorations painted!
- Cut pumpkin in half, peel, and seed; then cut flesh into cubes.
- Bake cubes on an oiled baking sheet at 200°C (400°F) for about 15 minutes, or until cubes are tender.
- Use in braised dishes, stir-frys, purées, pies, cookies, and so much more!
These pumpkins charm us with their varying weights, sizes and shapes. Their stringy flesh is little used for cooking, but their seeds are absolutely delicious toasted.
