sweet-tasting pumpkin this season

PICK UP A PUMPKIN

Following the trend from the

United States, pumpkins

have risen in popularity

here in the UK - with

picking patches popping

up in most areas - perfect for a muddy

autumn afternoon activity and, later,

carving your Halloween masterpieces.

But, even better, the nutritious and tasty

flesh provides a multitude of goodness

and lends itself easily to many savoury

and sweet seasonal dishes from soups

and curries to custards and pies.

Pumpkin typically refers to Cucurbita

pepo, the orange type of winter squash

we are so familiar with for Halloween.

Packed with vitamins and minerals, and

being around 90% water, pumpkin is fairly

low in calories yet particularly high betacarotene

that your body processes into

vitamin A, which strengthens your immune

system and can help fight infections -

perfect for this time of year. What's more,

it's on the lower end of the carb scale

compared with other winter squash -

almost half the carbs of butternut squash.

A few facts

Pumpkin is native to North America but

now grows around the world - pretty

much anywhere apart from Antarctica.

Pumpkins take up to five months to

grow. In the UK, pumpkins are harvested

between October and December. These

days UK farmers produce more and more

each year. Europe's largest pumpkin
