Pumpkin Hack

Here’s my hack so you can roast to your hearts content without the risk of severing a digit……

We are in peak pumpkin season, and I am making them for basically every meal.  I love to eat just about every variety of orange flesh squash and pumpkin and I always roast them skin on.  After years of near misses when slicing with not quite sharp enough knives, I discovered a trick.

Preheat your oven, ready to roast your pumpkins

Rinse your variety of choice (you can eat the skin after all…..)

Place them in the oven for 5 minutes until they smell a little fragrant.

Slice into wedges with ease, pop them on a tray, season and roast. 

You are welcome.
