Welcome to Lewes Food Market

The pumpkins are back in town...

.

When you scoop the flesh out of your halloween pumpkin make sure it is saved.  Previous years have seen a huge waste of pumpkin as halloween jack o lanterns are carved and the flesh thrown away. A staggering figure of 18,000 tonnes was estimated to be thrown away last year! A 2015 survey noted that over 50% of respondents would have used the flesh and seeds if they knew how.  So below are a couple of recipes from different cultures that show the diversity of the pumpkin.

Pumpkin soup works beautifully with the Thai flavours of coconut, lemon grass, kefir lime leaves, chilli and basil.  Sikil P'ak a pumpkin seed dip from Mexico makes a nutritious spicy dip. In the Indian lentil stew the wonderful spices are absorbed by the pumpkin, any leftovers are even better the next day.  Bread, in many cultures,  is a great way of using up leftovers from lentils to beer to seeds, the pumpkin puree gives the rolls a golden hue.
