How Do You Cook Pumpkin in the Instant Pot? 

For fresh pumpkin, you will need to use the trivet rack that comes with the Instant Pot. For every 2 pounds of fresh pumpkin, you will need 1/2 cup water. Place the pumpkin flesh on the trivet and pressure cook for 15 minutes.
Pureed pumpkin is used in this recipe. It can be cooked for 5 minutes in the Instant Pot.
