The easiest way to cook these (I think) is to wash them, poke a few holes in them, place them in a large bowl with a few tablespoons of water and microwave for 10 minutes or so until soft. Cut it in half, discard the seeds and then use a fork to pull out the stringy goodness. Maybe I am lazy but trying to cut through one of these raw just seems dangerous and like far too much effort! :)
