London, 2016-Nov-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — It’s that time of year again when we get busy carving freaky faces into pumpkins to give our neighbours a fright on 31 October.

If you want to do the right thing and get the most from your pumpkin, here are some handy hints and tips.

Sainsbury’s pumpkin-tastic facts:

  • Sainsbury’s stocks six main types of pumpkin at Halloween:
    • Carving Pumpkins (run-of-the-mill pumpkins)
    • Monster Pumpkins (giant pumpkins)
    • Ghost pumpkins (off-white pumpkins)
    • Superfreaks (ugly, warty pumpkins)
    • Munchkins (teeny, tiny pumpkins)
    • Standard eating pumpkins (for cooking)
    • Except for a few Munchkins, all the rest of our pumpkins are British
    • Carving pumpkins are specially grown for their size and colour – so you get the best-looking pumpkin to put on your doorstep
    • Carving pumpkins tend to be stringier and more watery than pumpkins grown for eating.  Therefore, if you do want to use the insides for cooking once they’ve been scooped out – we recommend using them for pumpkin soup.  Here’s a recipe for delicious curried pumpkin soup
    • You can also scoop out the pumpkin seeds and bake them in the oven on a low heat
    • Do dispose of your pumpkins responsibly and either put them in the garden compost or in your food waste
