    Step 2

    While that's cooking slice your fresh pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds. Reserve them for toasting later. Carve out the flesh from one half and dice into slightly larger than bite-size pieces. Add about 3/4 cup of the pumpkin to the pot and store the rest in your refrigerator for another recipe.
