 Easy Ways to Re-Use Your Pumpkin Post-Halloween


When Halloween is over you're left to clean out that mountain of candy wrappers and Jack O' Lanterns.

But instead of letting those perfectly good pumpkins rot in the trash, try these easy recipes to make the most out of leftover pumpkin!

1. Pickle It 

Pumpkin can be pickled just like any other fruit or vegetable, and makes for the perfect topping for Greek yogurt. Or you can be crazy and serve it with a curry, just like you would a mango pickle. We love this recipe from My Edible Journey.
