If you celebrated Halloween, you probably have a couple of pumpkins (not to mention left over candy) laying around. Earth911.com thinks there are other things you can do with those pumpkins besides throwing them in the trash, like recycle them.
Here are some ways you can do that:
#1 Make a Puree. Why would you need a puree? If you make pumpkin pies, the puree will come in handy. Whip up a batch and freeze it for when you need it.
#4 Make Your Own Latte. If you like lattes (like I do), try adding a little pumpkin. It’s not my thing. I prefer vanilla, but if you normally make a trip to Starbucks to get a Pumpkin Spice latte, try making your own.
#5 Use Pumpkin Guts to Make Pasta. Gutting a pumpkin might sound messy and it probably is, but it might add a new twist your pasta.
#8 Make a Scrub. Hmmm…this one surprised me. I didn’t think pumpkin guts could scrub anything. And they don’t. You need to add a bit of sugar, but the vitamins in your gourd will make your skin feel fab. If I had pumpkins, I’d definitely try this one.
