If you have ever grown pumpkin, you’ll know it will grow, and grow, and grow, and eventually take over your entire veggie patch. And if you use compost from your own compost bin, you don’t even have to plant it; it will come up from one of the multiple seeds that you discarded in the first place.

Pumpkin has a pretty good shelf life but sometimes you want to use it for something else than just the Sunday roast or pumpkin soup. My neighbour gave me this wonderful recipe that is incredibly easy to make. The sweetness of the pumpkin and the salty taste of the bacon are perfect together and the red onion gives it just that little bit of bite.
