Cooking Pumpkin
Boiling/Steaming Method: Cut the pumpkin into rather large chunks. Rinse in cold water. Place pieces in a large pot with about a cup of water. The water does not need to cover the pumpkin pieces. Cover the pot and boil for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender, or steam for 10 to 12 minutes. Check for doneness by poking with a fork. Drain the cooked pumpkin in a colander. Reserve the liquid to use as a base for soup. Follow the steps outlined below in Preparing the Puree.

Oven Method: Cut pumpkin in half, scraping away stringy mass and seeds. Rinse under cold water. Place pumpkin, cut side down on a large cookie sheet. Bake at 350°F for one hour or until fork tender. Then follow the procedure outlined below in Preparing the Puree.

Microwave Method: Cut pumpkin in half, place cut side down on a microwave safe plate or tray. Microwave on high for 15 minutes, check for doneness. If necessary continue cooking at 1-2 minute intervals until fork tender. Continue as outlined below in Preparing the Puree.

Pumpkin Ideas for Teachers
1.Estimate How much your pumpkin weighs, check your guess with counting.

2.Estimate how many seeds are in the class pumpkin, graph the estimate. Count the seeds to see who was the closest. Guess how many cups your seeds will fill. Measure with unifix cubes how long your seeds will line up on the floor.

3.Estimate the circumference of your pumpkin. Have each child cut a piece of string that they think will go all the way around the pumpkin. Check the strings.

4. Make a pumpkin counting book to "10 Little Pumpkins" use the small chart seals.

5. Use a sheet with a pumpkin form on it. How many seeds will it take to cover your pumpkin?
