How To Make Homemade Pumkin Puree
Preheat oven to 350. Cut around the stem of the pumpkin.
1
Scrape out seeds with a spoon.
2
Season lightly with salt. Flip over so skin side is up and roast for up to 1 hour until fork tender.
3
Let cool and scoop softened flesh from pumpkin skins.
4
Blend until smooth. Use a tamper for the blender if needed. Do not add liquid!
5
You could also use a food processor but it must be completely smooth.
6
Over low heat, cook in a wide pot so there is more surface area to cook off water from the puree.
7
Stir occasionally until puree has thickened to consistency of mashed potatoes.
8
Let cool and it's ready for any recipe!
