How to make Pumpkin Puree

This puree is so easy to make.
Great for homemade muffins, 
scones, soups, baby food,
 pumpkin pie, tarts and more.
And pumpkins are so easy to grow.



I use the small sugar pumpkins.
The larger one in the grocery stores
used for carving are

 tasteless and stringy.
Cut of the top
Cut pumpkin in half
scrape out seeds, pulp
and stringy membrane.

(Guts)

Seeds can be dried and eaten.
I save some to plant next Spring.

Place skin side down on cookie sheet
Bake 350 deg. 45mins-1hr.
Test for fork-tender.
Cooked
Test with a fork to see if tender.
Remove skin...
Skin will peel of easily

Puree in a food processor, blender or mash with a potato masher.
Add water if too dry and if too wet, drain in a cheese cloth.
I used my new Hamilton Beach
food processor.
I bought it on sale this week for $39.
at Canadian Tire store.

My Puree came out perfect.
I didn't have to add water
or drain it.
Can be frozen for use this winter.

A delicious recipe... check out my Pumpkin Scones .
