For me it was easy and fun to cut the pumpkins.
Just make sure you have a very good knife.
I keep my chopped pumpkins in the freezer and make soups, cookies, cakes and pies with it and there are so many more ideas in my head like breads, salads and much more.
I enjoyed this process so much that I got to cut more then 10 pumpkins and gave away some ready chopped pumpkins to family to use.
If you’ll be chopping more then a one pumpkin then I recommend to enjoy your time in the kitchen with your partner. It’s a great opportunity to be together and be active and have some fun in the kitchen.
The first step is to wash the pumpkin well.
Then place the pumpkin on a big cutting board and cut through the lines around the pumpkin.
Then cut the top in a circle around the stem.
The second part is to separate the crescent moon pieces and clean everything from the inside.
With a small knife, cut a thin layer from under each piece of the strands.
When everything is ready the next step is to chop.
Lay the crescent piece of pumpkin on the side and chop into pieces.
The third part now is to cut the skin from chopped pumpkins.
A few of the bags we put in the refrigerator to create recipes for some new ideas that I already had in mind.
The rest of the bags we put in the freezer.
To understand even better how to cut a pumpkin I created this video for you.
l hope it was helpful.
And here are some of the recipes that I created with pumpkins that turned out to be a big success and very delicious.
I’m still in the process of creating more recipes such as gluten free pumpkin loaf, pumpkin buns and more.
