    Buster's friend's Note:

    Adapted from a recipe in good old Yahoo groups. It originally called for the stew to be served in a roasted pumpkin - since this made serving pumpkin problematic (we like to eat pumpkin in our house) I adapted the recipe. Try to use a cooking pumpkin - I love the Long Island Cheese pumpkins for cooking because they have a thick, less watery, non stringy meat than field pumpkins. Winter squash, like candy roasters or acorn or Hubbards work well too.
