As a final farewell to Halloween…
We thought it would be fitting to make a pumpkin dish. Although the general consensus was that this was a terrible idea! But it wasn’t THAT bad!
We turned to Jamie Oliver... no surprise there. So if there are some culinary pumpkins on offer in your local supermarket perhaps give this a go!? It was very warming and all the spices, nuts and cranberries made for a very festive tasting palate. I almost felt the filling would make for an alternative mince pie, or a stuffing for a ballotine.
We went meat free, although there was the momentary pang for some chicken, but we realised a whole pumpkin for three with veg was probably enough! Can’t say we will be making it again but it was nice to try something out of the ordinary.
