Your Cooking Questions Answered: How to peel a pumpkin in 5 minutes!

Having a hard time peeling your pumpkins? If so, your not alone! Most people don't know how to peel a pumpkin in a quick and painless way. Because numerous clients have asked me that questions, I decided to write a post about it. pump1

You need a specific, very inexpensive tool to do this:

A swiss potato peeler: I use the one made my Kuhn Rikkon. It has a nice sharp blade, and works for many other kitchen tasks. The peelers are available in a range of color at Sur La Table and only cost $ 3.50! (Makes a great stocking stuffer!)


All you do is peel the pumpkin with this handy little tool. Don't cut the pumpkin before you peel it! It needs to be intact to be firm enough to withstand the pressure needed to peel it in this fashion

That's it! problem solved; you are ready to make all kinds of pumpkin dishes now!
