What am I doing this morning? You guessed it. Making my own pumpkin puree. I've always just thrown away our pumpkins that we carved, but this year decided to puree them so I could make . . . yummy pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, and of course pumpkin pie.
I found a great, quick recipe here.
1. oven to 400 degrees 2. cut pumpkin into quarters (place in pan with skin showing with 1 c. water) 3. place in oven for 30 minutes 4. cool until you're able to handle them 5. scoop out the flesh and then mash (or place in the blender if you want it like the store bought puree) 6. then pour through a sieve And you're done!!! Think of all the money you will have saved.
