Monday, October 25, 2010

Easy as can be roasted in the oven and mashed. Freeze for later!

You will need about a 4 lb fresh sugar pie pumpkin to make 1 1/2 cups of pureed pumpkin, its so easy.

Buy the pumpkin put them in the oven and bake them as followed on the directions, there is always a label to tell you how to cook them, normally, sliced in half, scoop out seeds (set seeds them aside on another cookie sheet), pulp side down on a greased cookie sheet. Place in the oven on 375 degrees,  for about an hour and a half. When cool, take a spoon and the insides of the pumpkins will scoop easily.

Mash by hand or for smooth puree put in a food processor just a few seconds. It won't take long at all and what a difference in taste, fresh is the best. Of course you can used canned in a hurry.

  1. I love pumpkin and pumpkin cakes even if I never made them. Thanks for the tips on how to make mashed. Bye bye, have a great week

  2. thanks for sharing,have a beutiful monday!

  3. Definitely it will be on to do list.
    I love pumpkins

  4. Excellent! Thanks for the tips! My friend could have used this years ago. She made a pumpkin pie with the strings and seeds, no pulp. She threw the pulp in the garbage. Then she called me over to tell her what was wrong with her pie! LOL!!!

  5. Love the tips! I have some pumpkins waiting to be pureed and I will go by your tips :)

  6. Pumpkin puree is lovely and has so many uses in the kitchen.


  7. I flunked making pumpkin puree. I have never been able to do it. I do eat the seeds! You make it look easy. You have untold talents.

  8. I'm so glad you posted those directions. I was sitting on the plane the other day wondering about roasting my own pumpkins but was going back and forth regarding what size and whether size makes a difference to the taste of the roasted pulp.
    I've GOT to try this, this year.
