How to slaughter a Hokkaido type pumpkin

I used to be intimidated by pumpkins, until I figured out how to cut them up. This way works for me.

Take a knife (not serrated) and take of outer ends

Stick knife in pumpkin and cut, making sure to keep the cutting edge at right angles with the pumpkin ‘wall’.

When the pumpkin is halved and emptied of seeds, remove the skin with a vegetable peeler. This type of pumpkin doesn’t need a more thorough peeling than this. And I know some who don’t peel them at all. I let the peel drop over the side of the working top.

Then cut up the halves, keeping the the knife at right angles.

And you end up with this:
