Step 1

Put the trivet (the one that comes with your Instant Pot i)nside the inner pot and pour over 1 cup of water.

Step 2

Place the whole unpeeled sugar pumpkin on the trivet.

Step 3

Lock the lid, turn the steam release vent to 'sealing' and using the manual setting, adjust it to cook for 15 minutes at High Pressure for a 2.5lb pumpkin about 12-13 minutes for smaller pumpkins, add a little more time more for bigger pumpkins.You may need to remove the stem to make it fit in your pot, but you can leave the stem on if it fits.

Step 4

When the cook time is up open the vent right away. (quick release)

Step 5

To test if the pumpkin is cooked, you should be able to very easily slide a small sharp knife through the skin and into the pumpkin. If it's not cooked, simply cook it for another 5-6 minutes at high pressure.

Step 6

When the pumpkin is fully cooked some of the skin should be slipping off. Once it's cooled enough to handle you can remove the rest of the skin, seeds, and fiber
