Pumpkins 2

Pumpkin power

Posted on 2 November 2018

Yesterday was Halloween and that means that some of you will be left with the haggard remains of a jack-o-lantern today.

Our friends at Hubbub say that 18,000 tonnes of edible pumpkin ends up in the bin each year. That's the same weight as 1,500 double decker buses!

If you fancy yourself as a domestic god/goddess, then there are loads of great pumpkin recipes on the hubbub website.

If you’ve still got the insides of your pumpkin and don’t want to cook or bake with it, you can put it in your home compost bin if you have one (please don’t put it in your garden waste collection bin as food cannot be disposed of in there).
