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.

As much as I love an afternoon spent pumpkin carving, it’s a bit of a shame that after all those months of growing, the tastiest part of the pumpkin is usually thrown away. 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”.
