I really like stewed pumpkin! Warm, sweet, almost transparent chunks of pumpkin. And It's so easy to make.
Steam in a large pot with lid, peeled and diced bite sized chunks of pumpkin in about an inch of water until translucient and tender. The liquid will increase as the pumpkin cooks. When the pumpkin is done, remove and sweeten the remaining liquid with sugar-to-taste making a simple syrup which is then added back to the cooked pumpkin. Serve as a vegetable side dish if not real sweet, or as a dessert. (Served on pound cake is one of my favorites.)
Or, here is another way I sometimes prepare it during holidays:
