Around Halloween, approximately 15 million pumpkins are carved by UK households and not eaten – enough to make a bowl of pumpkin soup for everyone in the country. Surprised?
Out of 2,000 people surveyed, over half said they didn’t think of a Halloween pumpkin as food and one in three mistakenly thought that a carving pumpkin could not be eaten.
So if you are carving a pumpkin this year, make sure you save the seeds & flesh to make some delicious meals and snacks.
