Preparation Ideas: Reheat oven to 325 F. Cut pumpkin in half. Using a spoon, scrape out the seeds and fibres. Cut the halves into chunks. Place the in a baking dish with the flesh side up. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the baking dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for approximately 1 hour or until flesh is fork-tender. Remove from oven and let the pumpkin cool. Remove flesh from the peel and either mash like potatoes or puree in a blender. The puree can be used to make fresh pumpkin pie, muffins or cookies in recipes that call for pumpkin puree.
