Long before Cinderella’s fairy godmother sent her bewitched pumpkin carriage careening towards a royal party under a reckless magic spell, this mythical fruit vined its way into the legend of witchcraft.
Here are a few ideas to bring this classic spell ingredient into your magical practice.
Dry roast the seeds and toss them in a mojo bag for prosperity. The fertile abundance of seeds inside a pumpkin perfect for success mojo bags.
Use your jack-o-lantern to chase away negative energy. Did you know jack-o-lanterns were originally carved to chase away demons? In the spirit of this tradition, burn a charcoal disk with protection herbs like rosemary to turn away negative energy at the doorstop.
Bury your kid’s spent pumpkin in the garden to “fertilize” a wishing spell. Never know what to do with your kid’s jack-o-lantern once Halloween is over? The pumpkin’s magical lore makes it “ripe” for wishing magic. Have your child write a goal for the springtime on a piece of (natural) paper, and bury it in the garden to bless his/her endeavors. Kids move so quickly from one phase to the next, seeing their “wish” come up in the spring will remind them of how far they walked since the beginning of the school year!
Boil your cauldron. If your kitchen-witchy, make a batch of crock pot pumpkin soup
Be sure to include plenty of “heart-warming” magical spices like chili powder or cumin. Stir it clockwise four times and bless it for strong ties between family and friends. Then serve it to everyone!
Leave it as an offering to the woodland spirits. Samhain is a time to honor those who came before you. Once you’re finished with

There’s some things though, I know for certain: always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for good luck, and fall in love whenever you can.
Our food ‘n flix pick for this month was an oldie, but a goodie: Practical Magic. Sisters Sally and Gillian are raised by their quirky, lovable aunts after their father dies due to an age-old curse on the Owens women and their mother shortly after, of a broken heart. The aunts serve chocolate cake for breakfast, they dose out love spells for the townsfolk, and they teach their nieces the importance of plants, herbs, and other magical properties.
Part romantic comedy, part supernatural, all chick-flick – how can I resist that combination? Plus, the cast of women is amazing: Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Stockard Channing, and Dianne Wiest. Throw in some cute guys (Aidan Quinn, Goran Visnjic, and Feuerstein) and some margaritas, and you’ve got yourself a fun afternoon!
There are a lot of fun foodie moments scattered throughout this flick. From young Sally’s spell which dictates her true love will “be able to flip pancakes in the air” (and the cactus-shaped pancakes that Gary makes), to the beckoning table settings that you notice if you pay attention, to chocolate-covered strawberries and the aforementioned chocolate cake to the beautiful produce at the outdoor market (including those ill-fated green apples that tragically scatter everywhere when Michael is killed). There’s mention of Blessing Seeds (aka Nigella Seeds), and even the products that Sally makes for her shop, like the Mint-Oatmeal Shaving Cream (“…he couldn’t stop eating it”).

But what I chose as inspiration from Practical Magic comes from liquid nourishement. One night when Sally and Gilly are grown up (Sally with daughters of her own), and have just dealt with a particularly unsettling event. Cut to the aunts in the kitchen, brewing up something intriguing…music rising in the background (you put the lime in the coconut…)…and you’ve got one of my favorite scenes of the movie: MIDNIGHT MARGARITAS!
Instead of the traditional margaritas that it looked like they were drinking, I decided to make a twist on the name and make margaritas that were the “color of midnight”. Fun for drinking at midnight or noon – that’s entirely up to you. I left out the Belladona-laced tequila and instead, added a bit of rosemary for remembrance (wouldn’t the ladies be proud). Of course, I can’t guarantee that you’re going to want to remember the night. I’d say that depends on the number of margaritas you consume.
Flip the switch and let the cauldron bubble!
Midnight MargaritasRosemary is the herb of remembrance. I suppose remembering Midnight Margaritas could be a good thing or a bad thing. It’s up to you to decide. Leave the rosemary out if you’re drinking to forget.Save
