COOKING THE PUMPKIN...
Cut a 2-3 pound pumpkin in quarters. Remove seeds and guts.
Place on a cookie sheet or baking pan which has sides, or you may end up with pumpkin juice on the bottom of your oven.
Bake at 350-375 for approximately 40 minutes.
a fork should pierce the flesh easily.
This can take from 40 minutes to over an hour, depending on the pumpkin's size.
When fully cooked, remove from oven and let cool before handling.
Scoop flesh away from skin and use immediately or refrigerate.
