Can I use my Jack-o-lantern?

cleopatra999 | Oct 23, 200807:15 AM     6

I have been told never to use your jack-o-lantern after halloween for cooking because of the use of the candle inside. Has anyone heard of this? what about a beeswax candle? I suppose I could buy one of the battery operated lights too.

what is the easiest thing to do with fresh pumpkin? Does size of the pumpkin matter? I have never used mine b4, except for roasting seeds. It has always seemed like a pain, but maybe with a simple recipe I would be more inclined. I am trying to be more 'green' these days, and throwing away a pumpkin seems wasteful...actually I guess I will put it in my compost, but still.
