How to Prep Pumpkin for Cooking

I love cooking with fresh pumpkin during the fall season.  I would like to post a tutorial on how to prep pumpkin for cooking.


1.  Cut your pumpkin in two  halves.


2. Scoop all the seeds out.


3. Slice the pumpkin, like you slice a water melon.


4. Then, take each slice and peel off the skin with a potato peeler or a knife.


5. Once the skin is off, cut the pumpkin into 1 inch cubes  or shred it with food processor or by hand with a shredded.


Now, your pumpkin is ready for cooking.  You can check some of my fresh pumpkin recipes like Fresh Pumpkin Oat Muffins, Pumpkin Soup Puree, or Fresh Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars.
