  This spectacular stuffed pumpkin can be the centerpiece of your
  Thanksgiving table.  Pumpkin is stuffed with rice, apples, raisins and sour
  cherries, then baked.
  Cut the stem end of the pumpkin as if you were about to carve a jack
  o'lantern.  Set aside "lid".  Remove insides of pumpkin and discard (or
  save to roast and munch on).  Using a grapefruit knife or melon baller,
  scoop out the flesh of the pumpkin as much as you can without piercing the
  skin.  Chop flesh and set aside.
  In lg saucepan, bring 3 qts of salted water to boil and dump in the rice.
  Cook over high heat, covered until still a bit hard to the bite...about 15
  minutes.  Drain well.
  Meanwhile, preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  In large bowl, combine, pumpkin, partially cooked rice, raisins, dried sour
  cherries and melted butter.  Season with sugar, salt and cinamon. Spoon
  stuffing loosely into pumpkin, sprinkle with the hot water and put "lid" on
  tightly.  Place on baking sheet and bake till pumpkin is tender to a point
  of a knife...about 2 hrs.  Cut into wedges and serve.
  Serves 8
