Baked Pumpkin

243. Pumpkins as a side dish? Why yes!
Little Sugar Pumpkins are perfect in flavor and texture.
Start by preparing the 1 to 2 lb pumpkins washing the pumpkins with mild dish soap, rinse and dry. Cut the top cap off by cutting a large circle.
Scrape out all the membrane and seeds clean from the inside and trim the top cap.
Peel, and cube an apple, one per pumpkin.
Cover with 1/4 - 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 cup raisins (optional), fresh squeezed lemon juice and dot the top with butter.
Place the top caps back onto the pumpkin.
Place in a 350 degree oven and bake 50-60 minutes or till tender. Or, microwave by covering with plastic wrap tightly. Microwave on high for 30 minutes.
Scrape the pumpkin down from the sides to mix with the filling. Serve hot.
