Did you eat it yet? I’d cut it into 1/2s or 1/4s and bake it. Rub with some olive oil, salt and pepper cook it for 45 minutes to an hour. Mmmmmmm

Hi wenda i have not eaten it yet because you are apose to let it sit aside for a week after you pick it.
And i will be making some pumpkin soup or stew out of it, but thanks for the idea and i will try that idea one time.
Cheers Jake
