Fresh Pumpkin Puree

Making fresh pumpkin puree is very simple, but can be a little time consuming. However, I think the end product is worth the effort. I always use "sugar" pumpkins, also known as "pie" pumpkins. They are much smaller than the standard pumpkin that we carve for Halloween and are much more tender and flavorful. --NOTE-- Baking time is only 1 - 1 1/2 hours and the remainder of the noted cooking time in this recipe is actually refrigeration time. --CHOOSING THE RIGHT PUMPKIN-- When buying a pumpkin for baking, always choose a pumpkin that is free of blemishes and have been harvested with their stems intact. The pumpkin should feel heavy for their size and should have a dull skin. A pumpkin with a shinny skin was either harvested too early or was waxed by the grower. --STORING PUMPKINS-- Store pumpkins in a cool, dry place at 45F - 60F for up to a month, or refrigerate for up to 3 months. To store pumpkins for an extended time, wash the skins of the pumpkin with a solution of 1 tablespoon chlorine bleach to 1 gallon water to disinfect the skins and discourage the growth of mold.
