Cooked pumpkin / Pumpkin Puree
Every fall I process pumpkins. What this means is, I peel, cube and boil my pumpkins (minus the guts of course) in lightly salted water. I cook them until they become soft, and then I immediately dump them into my blender (with a little cooking water as needed) and blend the pumpkin into a smooth puree. I then freeze 2 cup quantities in baggies and use the puree year round for my pumpkin breads, pumpkin pies, pancakes, soups etc.
