- Note:Preparing Fresh Pumpkin.
- There are many different ways to prepare pumpkin, but this is the easiest and quickest method we have found yet. When cooked right, the hard outer shell peels off practically by itself!Sugar pumpkins (the small pumpkins the size of a volleyball) are recommended, but we have used jack-o-lantern sized pumpkins, and even giant 50-100 pound pumpkins, with good results. In general, the smaller the pumpkin, the sweeter the meat. You may need to add more honey with a larger pumpkin (taste before baking). Use fresh pumpkins, not carved pumpkins. Any pulp not used immediately in recipes can be stored for up to 2 days in the refridgerator, or can be stored in the freezer indefinitely. If you store in the freezer, place a 1 cup portion in a plastic bag - this is the amount required by most recipes.
- Directions:Cut pumpkin in halves (or quarters, if large). Scoop out pulp and seeds. (Seeds can be saved later for roasting.) Lightly oil inside meat of pumpkin. Cover meat side of pumpkin with foil. Place foil-side down on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 1 1/2 hours, or until meat is soft throughout. Allow to cool until you can handle with your hands. Scrape pulp from rind and place in blender. Puree until consistent throughout. Line colander with coffee filters. Place puree in colander and allow to drain 2-3 hours, or overnight in fridge.

I was so touched by the responses to my inquiries on Recipezaar. If it wasn't for the fact I lost my favourite cheesecake recipe and was determined to find one similar or the same I would not have found Reipezaar so I just have to tell my story. I had lost this recipe in moving and I bought several baking books and searched the web for months in my desperate search. Extremely late one night I found Recipezaar and posted my lost recipe as best as I could remember. The next day in the forum there it was posted the one and only lost cheesecake recipe. I knew it was the one from some of the ingredients. Several chefs gave me other recipes including New York Cheesecake by Tyler Florence which is wonderful as well which includes the Cherry Confit topping in the recipe which we adore. On September 19, 2006 this story had a happy ending with me finding my old cheesecake recipe. I thought I will never lose it again by posting it on Recipezaar.recipe #186938.That is why I'm hooked on this wonderful web site called Food! </p>
