The one thing about pumpkin that is variable is the amount of water used in stewing the fruit. I generally pour in water into the saucepan to come up to 3/4 level of the fruit, in an attempt to ensure there's enough liquid so that it does not boil dry and yet not too much water which will dilute the flavors. The amount of stewing water depends on the variety of fruit and its ripeness. So, if there is one tip - take care to watch the pan when cooking pumpkin to avoid it boiling dry.
