Is there anything that I can do with an unripe pumpkin?

Gail HGail H Posts: 356 ✭✭✭

We are finally expecting our first hard freeze so I picked my last neck pumpkin. It weighs 3.5 pounds but isn't ripe; the skin is just starting to turn tan in places. Is there anything I can do with this? Can I use it like summer squash? I would probably peel it if I did. Can I pickle it? My kids would be just thrilled! Am I best served by just giving it to the chickens?

I do remember in the Little House books that Ma made an "apple" pie out of unripe pumpkin. I don't eat sweets, though, so I won't be trying that.
