1 Us­ing a sharp, ser­rated knife, cut out the top of a large, smooth, ripe pump­kin. Start at the back, about 7-8cm away from the stem, and care­fully work your way around. Pull the lid off and set aside. 2 Scoop out the seeds and fi­bres with your hands, then scrape the inside walls clean with a large spoon, metal mea­sur­ing cup or an ice cream scoop. 3 Cut away loose fi­bres and messy bits from the lid. 4 Draw a sim­ple face onto the front of the pump­kin with a marker. Use a small ser­rated knife to cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. 5 Pop a tea light inside the pump­kin and re­place the lid. Happy Halloween!
