Not your average pumpkin thread.

I have 2 large ones on my front steps, and three small ones on the front porch. All uncut, just sitting... Last year I just let em rot and tossed em. But I'd like to actually "do" something with them this year. Cut em' up and freeze them and use them for a pumpkin ale next year? Make pumpkin wax out of the damn things?

Or just cut the tops off and let the squirrels and rabbits go f$#&in nuts?

I know I can toast, salt, and bag the seeds but are there any other ideas on what to do with the rest? All thoughts on this version of the neverending pumpkin dilemma welcome.

How about these Pumpkin Preserves, or one of these Fresh Pumpkin recipes?

This so-called pumpkin wine doesn't sound too interesting to me, but this pumpkin wine seems more serious, and it has pictures!

Or you can use pumpkin puree in many pumpkin recipes.

Pumpkin Archery and other games are another possibility.

I've heard that most pumpkin pies don't contain pumpkin. Some other squash is used.

How about doing some target practice on them with guns .22 through 12 gauge?
