Pumpkin Tips

Selecting a Pumpkin: Choose a brightly colored pumpkin that is heavy for its size. It should have a thick, hard shell with no soft spots, blemishes, bruises, or cuts.

 

Pumpkin Preparation Tips: For this recipe, you should only use fresh pumpkins that have not been carved or used as decoration. Cover your cutting surface with a cloth to prevent the pumpkin from slipping. Using a sharp, heavy knife, insert the tip of the knife into the pumpkin and cut it in half. Clean by removing the seeds and strings with a spoon then peel with a vegetable peeler or pairing knife, and proceed as directed above.
