The Jack-O-Lantern, or carved pumpkin, is a staple of Halloween

It’s fun for both kids and adults to carve and display a pumpkin on Halloween.

But once Halloween is over, pumpkins often go to waste. But they don’t have to! We have put together some of our favourite recipes with pumpkin for you to try when this Halloween rolls around.

What to do with the left-over pumpkin

Thousands of tonnes of pumpkin gets thrown away each year but we have lots of ideas of what to do with the scooped out pumpkin flesh. Don’t forget the seeds; they can be cooked and enjoyed too!
