Fresh Pumpkin (Canned, Puree, Frozen)

This is a great way to take a fresh pumpkin and make your own "canned" pumpkin at home. I actually just freeze mine and vacuum seal for long-term storage. Very easy, just takes time. Expecially great if you're worried about preservatives or processed foods. *A 20 pound pumpkin yields about 16 cups of pumpkin puree.

  • 1 pumpkin (pie pumpkins taste best, but a carving pumpkin works fine too)
