I can't cut my pie pumpkins!

Jeff Shore | Oct 27, 200002:37 PM

I just bought four "pie pumpkins" -- smaller pumpkins intended for use in cooking (not just display). However, when I attempted to cut them with my nearly brand-new Henckel's chef's knife, I could barely make a scratch on the surface. They are so hard on the outside and, because they are small, it is impossible to get a good grip without placing important body parts right in the way of the knife.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to cut these things? Are they not ripe yet? Should I soak them? Buy a chainsaw?
