Charity Pumpkin Sale at ADAPT Saturday Market

It's that Autumn feeling with Halloween round the corner, and we have been asked to help out and sell some pumpkins on behalf of Harriet and all takings will go to a donation to Alder Hey Children's Hospital. This sale last year took place at Audlem School, but circumstances prevent that from happening there this year. So come on all you young and older trick or treaters and get carving those pumpkins. Of course, "eating" pumpkins make delicious pies, soups, curries. They can be served as loose vegetables, roasted or stuffed and they keep for ages. The "carving" pumpkins are usually larger. But do your carving with the help of an adult as it can be difficult and dangerous.

Its good advice for the younger ones to mark out the pattern you want and the adults do the carving.

As it is getting to the end of the growing season, the market will be having a break shortly, so it's a good time to top up your supplies of our regular staples, eggs, apple juice, many different varieties of jams, jellies, chutneys, marmalades, and other preserves, local honey and beeswax candles, potatoes, several varieties of apples, and good old Jerusalem artichokes. These artichokes are classed as a super food and grow in any soil in any corner of your garden. They are related to sunflowers, they grow tall and have eye-catching yellow flowers which can be cut and displayed. They are harvested from now till the early Spring. They contain inulin which is a pre-biotic and helps good bacteria grow in your gut. They do come with a health warning as, for some people, it may cause digestive issues. I find they are most easily digested without problems as a soup, and the soup recipe will be available on Saturday.

Hope you can come and support the market and the Pumpkins in aid of the Children's hospital.

10am to noon under the Buttermarket.
