Chuckie's Pumpkin Comp

102
Found 27th Oct 2017
Ok, as it's my favourite time of the year, I would like to do my own little pumpkin comp.
I'm afraid that I don't have much to offer prize-wise but the winner will receive the grand prize of a £5 Thorntons chocolate gift voucher (for instore use only).
It's all a bit of fun really so please, get carving and pop on a pic.

T&Cs: Picture must contain a piece of paper with username and date.
Winner will be chosen 31st October @ 9pm.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! 🎃

Big pumpkin flesh isn't good to eat, they're grown for carving. The seeds are the eating bit.

Same profile, new name because i got bored.
Undecided if my new pumpkin seed recipe is a success. They come out of their shell's much easier (two on top left). But they're puree inside! (Snail poo looking thing is what comes out if you squeeze 'em).

I'm wondering if they will solidify when they cool down.
No shell, no skin. They pop right out and they taste nice. I win, finally

No idea what I thought ox tail soup was then!?

As long as you scoop the goop out pretty thoroughly, they should be fine May even be better unwrapped just somewhere cool, because they won't sweat. One year I read if you rinse them in a mild bleach solution they keep longer. I did try it, but I didn't notice much different to be honest. Apart from them smelling of bleach!

We used to have oxtail stew 'all the time' when I was kid

still don't see the need to shell the seeds the shells are nice to eat as well(and better for you that way no doubt)
had to do mine last night as it was going bad
scoffed all the seeds marrow/large courgette seeds work just the same

Lol. The rules aren't that hard to follow are they?

Guess no one likes chocolate?
Well, even if you don't want to 'enter the comp'. Please feel free to add your pics of your masterpieces. I love Halloween!
