+ BUY­ING If buy­ing whole, choose pump­kins with firm, glossy skin.

If cut, it should be well sealed, have firm flesh and the seeds should be plump with no dis­coloura­tion.

+ STOR­ING Whole pump­kins can be stored in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months. Once cut, re­move seeds, cover with plas­tic food wrap and then re­frig­er­ate for up to 1 week.

+ US­ING One of the most ver­sa­tile of veg­eta­bles, pump­kin can be boiled, baked, grilled or mashed. Use in pat­ties, gnoc­chi, soups, cakes, fill­ings – the list seems end­less.
