Did you carve your pumpkin? Don’t worry... It won’t go to waste! ;-)

On the 31st of October.. it’s Halloween! It is celebrated in America and in many other countries. It is also a day where pumpkins are greatly honored! Why? Because they are carved into various shapes (scary or funny faces) and transformed into “lanterns” creating a special and a little… spooky atmosphere!

Halloween is not celebrated much in Greece but we seem to really like and enjoy the esthetics of it! Pumpkins seem to have found there place in the Greek household and rightly so since they not only make the garden more beautiful, they look great on balconies, living rooms and even in kitchens! If you are among those who still haven’t made up your minds whether or not you can do this… stop thinking and just do it! Buy your own pumpkin, carve it, remove the flesh, fill it, decorate it and then… cook it!

Just click here to learn how to choose the best pumpkin, how to use it, how to help keep it fresh longer and also find out the signs that show that the time has come to put it in the pot, pan or baking pan. Before you do this though, take a look at the recipes below. Delicious recipes that will help you transform your pumpkins… not into a horse and carriage but into amazing sweet and savory delicacies!!!!

In some recipes you can use the flesh of the pumpkin… grated or cut into small cubes. In other recipes you have to prepare a Pumpkin puree beforehand, which will be used as a basic ingredient in many of these pumpkin..y recipes!

I don’t know which recipe you are going to choose but I do know that whichever one you choose to make… you and whoever you enjoy it with will be impressed and go crazy with the wonderful flavors and aromas! ;-)
