    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  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
