In Season Pumpkins

When we think of autumn, we immediately think of pumpkin! The name derives from the Greek word meaning 'large melon.' Funny that, it indeed belongs to the same family as melons, cucumbers and courgettes! As pumpkins contain seeds and grow on vines, it is in fact considered a fruit, rather than a veggie – who knew?!

How To Prepare Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash, also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, and spaghetti marrow, is a unique vegetable that can make a funky substitute for pasta. When raw, the flesh is solid and similar to other raw squash; but when cooked, the flesh falls away from the fruit in ribbons or strands like spaghetti! If you receive a whole squash, use a large sharp knife to halve squash lengthwise, leaving stalk attached. Keep seeds and core attached. To save time the spaghetti squash can be cooked the night before, scooping out and separating the spaghetti strands on the day of cooking.
