    Did you grow them yourself?

      No I got them from a company called The Local Grocer, it’s a box scheme of sorts. I’ve hollowed one out and am going to use it as a vessel for serving soup later 🙂 I’m trying to this of something novel to do with the other one… Any ideas? Xx

        just the traditional hollow it out, cut shapes and place a candle inside …. make pumpkin soup though, i love it – add nutmeg – even better.

        If you saw how tiny these are .. A night light would hardly fit in them! Nutmeg and chillies are essential for pumpkin soup, we eat lots of pumpkins here.

    Pumpkins were one of the things I loved about living in New Zealand – big and small, orange and blue. Loved ’em all! Have you come across Stephanie Alexander’s The Cook’s Companion? I got it out from the library while in Christchurch and read my way through the entire thing – it was a great way of finding my way around all the different foods and terms. Still never fully converted to cup measurements, though!

      I have borrowed the cooks companion twice from the library I love it! There’s a gardening one too which is fab.
      Pumpkins are a great new discovery here, sweet potatoes and avocados are my other two faves! I’ll have to find a way to ship them over if I ever move back to Ireland.
      Thanks for commenting Caroline xx
