How to Make Pumpkin Puree
This past weekend we went to Neene’s (grandma) house for our official Pumpkin Day. We cooked up our Fall pumpkin to get it ready for making yummy goodies.
Here’s my daughter eating yummy pumpkin. It was quite good actually. You could stop at this point and just use this as baby food if you wanted. Put it all in separate canisters and freeze it.
But we will be doing more with our pumpkin.
More to come on this! I’ll show you how we made Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Pie Popsicles, Pumpkin Bread, and Roasted Pumpkin seeds.
You all can visit my old posts to see what we did after this. Check out Part Two and Part Three. This pumpkin puree can be used in many different recipes. I freeze all my pumpkin puree and then thaw it when I am ready to use it. This will save you a lot of money, because you don’t have to buy the cans (isn’t there a shortage on these right now, anyway?). This is also a lot healthier and a great way to use those holiday pumpkins!
So what have you all been cooking up in the kitchen this week? Share your menu plans, recipes and progress here with the Linky as part of my regularly hosted Cook-It Wednesday post! Please link directly to your posts and/or recipes, so that it is easy for us to see what you’ve been baking/cooking!
