I purchased one of each of these.
I found ones that were firm and didn't have any holes or defects to speak of. It was not hard to find in the gazzilion on display. ( Ok, maybe it was not a gazzilion ).
I first cut them in half. I found this was not an easy task so proceed at your own risk. These suckers are hard to cut.
Clean out the seeds but do not throw them away. The seeds are really good if you rinse them, add some salt and toast them in the oven for about 10 minutes at 400F. Mmmmm.
I put about a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of light brown sugar in the hole. The amount is not that important. Sprinkle some brown sugar on the surface as well as in the hole. Add some salt and pepper.
I suggest you put this in a non stick pan as the sugar and butter can create a mess to clean up. This is not something Zorana worries about but I do.
Bake this for about 1 hour at 400F. Check them with a fork to make sure they are soft. If in doubt, cook them another 10 minutes. It doesn't really matter.
Here is what they look like.
Make more than you can eat as we found they taste even better warmed up the next day.
