DIRECTIONS

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