  • I made one half, think didn't

    I made one half, think didn't scoop out enough pumpkin or roast it long enough. It was ok, probably would not make again (but I think it's because I didn't cook long enough). Also have lots of stuffing left over.

    Thanks for all your awesome comments tmrc_emoticons.) it does make heaps of stuffing - I use a sharp knife and cut the flesh in a grid, then use a spoon to get it out...

    Also, I usually just mix the uncooked flesh in with the rest of the stuffing mix and it should cook in the oven.

  • Thank you for a very filling

    Submitted by Ros Teirney on 6. April 2013 - 22:58.

    Thank you for a very filling meal - we had two butternut pumpkins between five adults and in tge end we struggled to finish the delicious vegetarian main course. I did remove some of the pumpkin when it was raw by marking out a grid and removing small cubes with a sharp spoon, but it was much easier after the pumpkin halves had been roasted to scoop out the rest. I didn't even use the raw pumpkin that had been set aside as there was so much lush roast pumpkin I could easily use. Delicious! Thank you.

  • I have this in the oven and

    I have this in the oven and it smells amazing, but how on earth did you get the raw pumpkin flesh out of the shell?  I really struggled with this, and it took me about an hour to do the four pieces, and even then I left a very "thick" shell !!
