Have you ever wanted to make your own Pumpkin Puree but thought it is way too much work. Well I have found a very simple way to do it. Start with a Cooking Pumpkin. Wash it and pat dry. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Next slice the pumpkin in half.
Once you have sliced it. Clean out all the seeds and the stringy insides. Be careful not too scrape too much pumpkin off the sides. Next place the pumpkins inside down on a roasting pan.
Next place pan in the oven and bake for 1 and 1/2 hours. Your home will smell so lovely as the pumpkin cooks. Once done pull the pumpkin out and let it cool for 15 minutes. Then scoop out the pumpkin into a blender.
Once in blender put on cover and puree until smooth and creamy. Then put in containers and either place in refrigerator or you can freeze it. This will stay fresh in the refrigerator for 7 days and you can freeze for up to 3 months. The amount of pumpkin you get will depend on the size of the pumpkin.
I used my pumpkin puree to make Easy Pumpkin Pie!
