The Halloween Pumpkin Special!
(Scroll to the next page for recipes…..)
Welcome to a very special family-friendly episode of Green Bites, all about the pumpkin.
Join Ellie and her co-host Fionn, 5, to carve pumpkins and make pumpkin pie from a very special pumpkin that Ellie got by going to visit vegetable farmers Joe and Sandra Burns.
Every year Joe and Sandra grow 5,000 pumpkins on their farm, where they also make delicious and award-winning crisps out of potatoes and other vegetables. Then they run pumpkin picking weekends where families can come and choose their own pumpkin!
Covering food waste, seed-saving, how pumpkins grow and recipes you can use to make sure you’re getting the most out of your Halloween pumpkin, this podcast episode is tasty food for thought and comes with recipes too! Would you like to try saving pumpkin seeds to grow your own? Did you know a pumpkin is a fruit but rhubarb is a vegetable?
