How to Make Pumpkin Puree

  • Author: Cullys Kitchen


  • Pumpkin


  1. I use sugar pumpkins – they are on the small side so I cut them in half.
  2. If you are using a larger pumpkin you will want to at least cut it into quarters depending on the size. Remove the seeds.
  3. Lay the pumpkin pieces flesh side down in a shallow baking pan.
  4. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees till tender. About ½ hour to 45 minutes.
  6. When a fork penetrates through the skin into the pumpkin flesh easily it is done.
  7. Scoop the pumpkin flesh out with a large spoon while the pumpkin is still warm.
  8. Process the pumpkin flesh through a blender to create the puree.
  9. Can or freeze-your choice.
