5 of the best pumpkin recipes

Nothing says autumn has arrived like the sight of children clinging proudly onto their pumpkins, trailing (happily for once) around the supermarket behind their Mums and Dads.

So today, I’ve picked out five of the best pumpkin recipes around to give you some inspiration to make more than just a lantern this year! Click the photos or title to be whisked to the full recipe quicker than you can say “abracadabra”.
