Making pumpkin puree is really easy. You don't need anything but a pumpkin. You can make a huge batch and freeze it so you can use it later for muffins, pancakes or pie. You can even add it to your smoothies.
1. Rinse and clean your pumpkin. Cut off the top then cut it in half. Scoop out the inside. But don't throw the seeds away. Here's a recipe for Roasted Pumpkin Seeds.
2. Place it upside down on a baking sheet. I added foil for easy cleanup.
3. Place it in a 400 F oven for 35-40 minutes or until the skin is soft.
5. Peel off the skin.
6. You can blend it, put in a food processor or use a potato masher. It's up to you. I just used a FORK! I placed it in a bowl and mashed it.
You can either freeze it or put in the fridge. It should be good for 5 to 7 days in the fridge.
