I was given a pumpkin so used this recipe to make the puree. Very easy.
I planted pumpkins this year for the grandkids. They start to mature early. I used 1 pumpkin for this recipe. The pumpkin yielded 1 1/2 qts which I froze.
I made Pumpkin Pie
Excellent instructions and this turned out well for me though I put mine in the freezer--will do something later. Might get another pie pumpkin at the Farmer's Market next week, too, turned out well.
Hi! I will try this method! I cut mine in half and steam them in my canner! Then just lift them out with the rack and cool in a large bowl. Works great! Try Cinderellas! They are wonderul! I plant them now instead of the sugar pumpkins. Very beautiful and delicious! Thanks for the idea! Jelly :)
I had a big, honkin' pumpkin, so of course, my bake time was much longer. But, this method works perfectly! Thanks for posting all the great info in the introduction, as well. :)
Thank-you for a super fresh pumpkin recipe. I was surprised how much liquid drained from the puree, and next time I will use cheesecloth or muslin as my paper coffee filters only just held together! Definately a keeper, despite the amount of work involved.
