Pumpkin carving is a great way to amuse the children but we often don't know what to do with it.
Make spicy pumpkin soup and use up the seeds for a tasty snack.
If you don't want to make pumpkin soup, try roast pumpkin lasagne or a pumpkin tart.
Another great idea for Halloween parties are toffee apples. Every day in the UK four million whole apples are thrown away! To make them dip apples into two melted tablespoons of sugar.
When you have finished with your carved pumpkin then please home compost it or if you have one put in your food waste collection.
