What is Pumpkin Puree?

When a cooked pumpkin is mashed or blended into a smooth pulp. The best pumpkins for cooking and turning into a puree are the smaller pie pumpkins or sugar pumpkins rather than the larger jack-o-lantern type. This goes great with pumpkin pastas, macs, chilis, breads and cakes. You can even bake the seeds as a snack, like my Smokey BBQ Spiced Pumpkin Seeds.

The oven method is great if you want to make a large amount, as the space in the pressure cooker limits you.

You can double or triple this for the oven. Refrigerate 3 to 4 days or freeze to use in any recipe where a can of pumpkin is called for.
