Pumpkin Brains - What to do with the pulp surrounding pumpkin seeds

Call it Pumpkin brains, pumpkin guts, pulp, goop... it's the stringy mess inside the pumpkin that holds the seeds. These days, roasted pumpkins seeds are all the rage, (see this page for recipes) but people want to know what to do with the pulp.  The seeds are tasty, full of anti-oxidants, high in fiber and protein, gourmet shops and health food stores stock them. And the pumpkin flesh itself is also very good (see nutritional content below.

But the pulp? It ought to be edible, but given its fiberous texture and purpose, it is likely to be considered tasteless and stringy... not generally appealing in a food... to most people.
