    Pumpkin pulp is also sold in 16-ounce cans, which makes a convenient substitute for fresh cooked pumpkin in recipes. Fresh pumpkin, however, always tastes better.

    1. 1
      Here is the method I use to cook it: Cut the pumpkin into quarters and remove the seeds and fibers.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and bake the pumpkin quarters 45 minutes, until tender.
    3. 3
      Remove from the oven and scrape the flesh from the skin.
    4. 4
      Place in a food processor and puree.
    5. 5
      Run through a sieve to remove any remaining fibers and use the pumpkin according to the recipe instructions.
    6. 6
      Cooked pumpkin will keep about 1 week in a nonmetal, covered container in the refrigerator and several months in the freezer.

      Worked really well, except I apparently had a field or carving pumpkin, instead of a sugar pumpkin, the kind you need for pies. I baked it for a total of 1.5 hours, and it was still hard to scrape it and my blender almost had a heart attack! I got rave reviews for the pie, though! So make sure you use a sugar or pie pumpkin!

      So I used a candy pumpkin and baked it for 45 minutes but it was still too hard and wouldn't blend in my processor. I had to bake them at least another 20 minutes but ended up losing a quarter because I thought it was baked completely but it wasn't. Lots of work but worth it. SOOO much better than store its crazy. I thought I liked the store brand but I will never go back. Thank you!

      Glad to find your recipe. And you're right -- fresh pumpkin is DEFINITELY better than the canned! I made pumpkin cookies with mine so it wasn't even necessary to process it. THANK YOU!
