Homemade pumpkin puree
Unsure what to do with your Halloween pumpkins after the big night is over? If they’re still fresh and clean, bring them inside and turn them into pumpkin puree with little effort!
Last year, I completely forgot about our lovely carved pumpkin and accidentally left it out on the balcony until mid November – as it was unusually warm at that time, the formerly sturdy veg didn’t look so sturdy anymore by the time I remembered to check it. This year I decided to do better and have just recycled our beautiful jack-o-lantern into a big pot of creamy puree.

Recipe tips
Pumpkin puree makes a great base for vegetable soup. You can also use it in cakes and cookies (pumpkin cookie bar recipe coming soon!), or simply add some herbs and serve it to your baby for his or her next meal. The puree stays fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days, alternatively you can freeze it in portions and defrost it whenever you want to use it.
