Countless pumpkins are purchased each year for carving and decorating our houses and doorsteps at Halloween.
We’ve put together a few ideas on what you could do with your pumpkin after Halloween to help reduce food waste generated by this age old tradition…
Cook it – If your pumpkin still appears fresh why not use to it make some pumpkin soup or even a delicious pumpkin pie? Check out our pumpkin soup recipe from a few weeks back here.
Pumpkin Seeds – why not take these out and roast them for a tasty snack? Or take out the seeds and store the seeds until next May and have a go at growing your own pumpkin?
Compost it – remove any candles or other items which it was decorated with and put it in your food waste or compost bin. Don’t send pumpkins to landfill – pumpkins which go to landfill produce methane gas as they decompose which plays a part in climate change.
