Pumpkin Puree
It is hard to beat fresh. Pumpkins are easy to grow and freeze or can very well. 1 3/4 cups of pumpkin puree equals one 15 oz can of pumpkin.

  1. baking fresh pumpkin finished pumpkin puree
  2. I use sugar pumpkins - they are on the small side so I cut them in half. 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. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees till tender. About ½ hour to 45 minutes. When a fork penetrates though the skin into the pumpkin flesh easily it is done.
  5. Scoop the pumpkin flesh out with a large spoon while the pumpkin is still warm.
  6. Process the pumpkin flesh though a blender to create the puree.
  7. Can or freeze-your choice.
