Cooking a whole pumpkin?

The Oracle | Nov 2, 2011 12:53 PM

Please pardon my ignorance on this - but: what do I do with a whole pumpkin?!

I bought a couple pumpkins, with the intent to carve them, but I never got around to it. They've sat on my doorstep for approx 2 weeks in a fair amount of sunlight and average 70 degree temps and have gotten considerably lighter (dried out, perhaps?)

Is there anything I can do with them (other than roast the seeds)? Can I cut it up and bake the flesh?

Or have I missed the window for doing anything with them and should just throw them out?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
