How do you bake a pumpkin whole in the stove?
Wash off the pumpkin and remove the stem. place on a cookie sheet. Sit in 300 oven and cook until knife goes in very easily when pierced. Remove and cool enough to handle it. I use gloves and a very large knife and cut it in half from top down. It falls into 2 parts.
Now get a large spoon and scoop the shells and materials into a bowl until clean. Now use the same spoon to scoop the pumpkin meat out into a bowl and cool. We mash it and bag it in 2-3 cups amounts or whatever you like according to any recipe you use frequently. Cool it flatten the bag, label and store stacked in freezer. Ontario
Simple, few ingredients, sweet, and different! Pumpkins are in season, so it's perfect!
