What's scarier than witches, ghosts and ghouls at Halloween...? Is it the ghoulstly 15 million pumpkins that are binned every Halloween, which is enough to make a bowl of pumpkin soup for everyone in Britain? Or is it the fact that the binned pumpkins, when laid end to end, would stretch over 2,500 miles - all the way from UK to Azerbaijan, where pumpkin pancakes are a national dish? Spine chilling stuff eh. There's a simple solution though, join the #PumpkinRescue and discover tasty simple ways to eat your pumpkin guts.
