Important tips for pumpkin from the oven

  • To cut through the pumpkin's tough skin, use the tip of a sharp chef's knife where you want to cut. That will give you a starting point to get the blade of your knife started. Then put your knife on that spot and gently shake it back and forth. Try not to apply too much force. The soft surface of the pumpkin can then slide.
  • Use a preheated oven.
  • Cooking times vary slightly depending on the thickness of the squash, so check around 15 minutes.
