Baked Pumpkin

I know, I know...I spent about six weeks baking nothing but pumpkin, but this Native American variation was superb. It's an Ojibwa recipe from Ottawa, Canada.

Cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds. Place two orange halves in the cavity and fill the pumpkin half-way with water. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Let cool then slice into wedges. Brush with melted butter, drizzle with maple syrup. Bake again till the tops begin to brown.

What a nice, sweet flavor foil to salty roasted meats!
