Make Your Own Pumpkin Puree

The Pumpkin Patch cousins told me a couple of years ago the trick to making pumpkin puree. Throw the whole pumpkin in the oven at 350 for about an hour. When fork tender, pull it out. The skin peels off with a fork. Cut it in half and remove the seeds and guts. I put the flesh in a colander with a plate to weigh it down a bit to get rid of excess moisture. This Illumina is so sweet. I may just snack on it a little while before I make a pie.


  1. I've been using pumpkin puree a lot this year. But, seeing the prices for pumpkins lately, I'm thinking I'll just stick with the canned stuff. Even if it doesn't taste as good. It seems like pumpkins are rediculously over-priced. Is it just me?

  2. wait till after Halloween. super cheap pumpkins. I'm cheap.

  3. Canned pumpkin in Hawaii costs $4.75. Too bad I have pumpkin fever. We also don't get cool pumpkins like that. The pumpkin I cooked last year (jack o lantern type) was totally tasteless. So sad.
