It’s the month for delicious pumpkins! Make sure to use up the flesh of your Halloween pumpkins as it is so tasty – cut it up into cubes and freeze it to use in both savoury and sweet dishes over the autumn months. Here, Anna Janecka shares a yummy cobbler recipe which uses pumpkin puree. This can either be shop bought, or you can make your own from those leftover pumpkins! Serve warm with a dollop of your favourite ice-cream. Anna Janecka pecan cobbler 2 scaled
