That sounds great Badger, I will try that one. In fact I would have done it last night if I hadn't already got the stuff ready for a butternut squash and fennel crumble.

As you might guess, I had a good result with my butternut squash harvest this year Very Happy

I had a surprise plant, I thought I was growing pumpkins - I ended up with dozen or so Butternuts...
