Pumpkin carving and a seasonal halloween recipe – 2011.10.25

Hi all,

I am getting more excited by the day about Halloween especially as our new Halloween ecard is so close to being ready!

Our kids are too old now to go trick or treating or have halloween parties like we used to, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t get into the spirit. I still like to carve some pumpkins to put on our doorstep and in the garden or house as they make beautiful seasonal lamps which can last up to 10 days if you soak the finished carving in bleach for 8 hours and then spray with a mild bleach solution each day.

I love to carve a couple and then make yummy pumpkin soup out of the carved flesh. I have used this great recipe a few times before and it is delicious:

Let me know what you think if you get round to trying it!
