Took shortcuts.Steamed the pumpkin in the microwave.-17 Oct 2010
It took longer to cook and was quite slippery to scoop the flesh off the skin. Would remove skin and cube before cooking next time.-20 Nov 2012

Simple, easy instructions for the first time pumpkin pureer, a trick to this is too not let the pumpkin get cold before scooping out the pumpkin meat..once its cold it gets hard to do.-17 Oct 2005
