Waving goodbye to summer is never easy, but something as simple as the smell of some delicious roasted pumpkin or a sweet pumpkin pie can quickly remind you of all the reasons to be excited about Autumn. And so, to celebrate the superfruit of the season, we've compiled a list of our six favourite ways to eat pumpkin with a hand-picked selection of products from merchants at

    1) Pumpkin Jam

    This classic Portuguese treat is one of the sweetest ways to enjoy pumpkin, simply spread on toast or use as a novel ingredient in your home baking. This jam from Campos Santos is made from pumpkin, a reduced amount of sugar and nothing else. Pure pumpkin bliss!

    2) Pumpkin Crisps

    Crunchy, satisfying and guilt free! These crisps are vacuum fried with no additives or preservatives, and since they contain all the goodness found in fresh pumpkin they count as one of your five a day!

    3) Pumpkin Seed Butter

    The nutty, satisfying taste of roasted pumpkin seeds in a smooth textured butter. We love this pumpkin seed butter from Meridian — it contains nothing but 100% organic, roasted pumpkin seeds and is delicious on crackers, crumpets or as a baking ingredient. It's the new peanut butter!.

    4) Pumpkin Risotto

    There's nothing more comforting on a cold Autumn evening than a creamy risotto, and this such an easy to prepare mix with all-natural ingredients and superfine carnoli rice. Simply add a drop of olive oil or butter, hot water and a splash of dry white wine and in 18 minutes you'll have pumpkin perfection.
