I had one of the kids pumpkins survive from Halloween and wanted to make my own pumpkin puree so I cooked it up. here’s what I did…
preheat oven to 400 degrees.
cut pumpkin in half, scoop out the insides, place upside-down on baking sheet, poke with fork a couple of times. bake for 45-60 minutes. (check readines by sticking a fork in it.
this is what our pumpkin looked like when it was done baking. it was a small pumpkin.
scoop the insides from the shell and stick it in the blender. blend well. isn’t it a beautiful color!?
I got exactly 2 cups from our little pumpkin 🙂
