pumpkin, replace lid, and bake on oiled cookie sheet for 1 1/2 hours or
more at 325 F. It is done when a fork pushes easily through the pumpkin.
Transfer to a caserloe dish and serve at the table, scooping out some of
the tender pumpkin flesh with each serving of stuffing. If the pumpkin is
organically grown, you may eat the skin too. (If you have too much stuffing
