There’s More To Carving A Pumpkin Than Carving

Scarved squash with seeds for teetho what do you do if you want to carve a squash but you’ve already eaten some of its delicious squashiness?  We’re well and truly into squash season and since discovering that there is so much more to squash than the pumpkin offering you get in your average supermarket, I’m trying to cram as much of the glorious food group into my diet as possible.  So upon deciding that I’d like to make a halloween blog post, I was confronted with my ‘Baby Bear’ squash with most of what would be its ‘face’, already sliced off…

Although to be honest the cavity looked like a gaping maw, so that gave me something to start with.  I still had the seeds so thought I’d smoosh them into the flesh to make teeth.  A word to the wise – it may be best to roast your squash seeds first.  Trying to wedge seeds into the flesh is a bit like washing your hands with an especially slippery, freedom-leaping, bar of soap.  Next, to the spices!  Good ol’ cloves… They make perfect little black eyes…  Et voila!  Using ‘props’, I present one ‘not-carved’ squash.
