Pumkin pie is a traditional dish in the USA but is also popular in certain parts of the UK, in areas where marrows, squashes and pumkins are grown. At Halloween time, 31st October, large pumkins are used to make lanterns. A face is cut into the skin of whole, large, pumkins and the flesh is removed through the holes. A night light type of candle is placed inside the hollow pumkin. Pumkin flesh obtained in this way can be cooked and used to make pumkin pie.
