One of the things I look forward to doing after Halloween is roasting the leftover pumpkin. It is so simple to do and makes the most of something which otherwise would have been wasted. All you have to do is cut up the remaining pumpkin into pieces and then place in a hot oven for 20 minutes. It is done when you can see the flesh beginning to char, it is soft and has small beads of moisture on it.
Leave it to cool down a bit, but not tho far and then scrape the cooked flesh into a bowl. You can mash it up with a fork and then freeze in cup portions ready for pumpkin loaf, muffins and pies !
