What to do with fresh pumpkin

rweater | Nov 2, 2007 08:19 AM

We have a smallish to medium sized carving pumpkin that didn't get carved this year. I know that pumpkin is supposed to be full of vitamins and is actually pretty nutritious, but I've never used a fresh one in cooking before so I have no idea what to really do with it.

How do I prep it for cooking? I'd imagine you'd remove the seeds like you would with any other squash, but after that, I'm uncertain of what to do.

How much of it do you use in recipes (i.e., how much could I make with it per pound or ounce of pumpkin meat)?

Any recipes other than desserts?
