Pick up your pumpkin when you take a visit to the fabulous new Apley Farm Shop and don’t forget the ingredients for your favourite spicy pumpkin soup. Courtesy of Jamie Oliver.

1 pumpkin, peeled and seeded
2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 dried red chillies
Olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
A bunch of fresh sage, leaves picked
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 carrot, sliced
1 stick of celery, trimmed and chopped
1.5 litres vegetable stock
4 tbsp sour cream

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/ gas mark 6. Cut your pumpkin flesh into even-sized chunks and transfer them to a roasting tray.

Bash up the coriander seeds, cinnamon and dried chillies with a pestle and mortar until nice and fine, then sprinkle over the pumpkin. Drizzle with a little olive oil, season with salt and pepper, then roast in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes until nice and soft.

Just before the pumpkin is ready, gently cook the chopped onion, carrot and celery with a little olive oil in a large pan for 10 to 15 minutes until without colouring. Add the roasted pumpkin to the pan and pour in the vegetable stock. Bring everything to the boil then turn off the heat and blitz to a puree with a hand blender. Meanwhile, fry your sage leaves in a little olive oil for a couple of minutes until crispy.

Serve your soup with a swirl of sour cream and a sprinkling of crispy sage leaves in each bowl.
