I grew about 70 organic pumpkins this year and after giving many away to friends, family, our FFA program, I still had a LOT of pumpkins left over! I had never made pumpkin puree before, and was worried it would taste different than what my family is used to - Libby's. NO!! I used Howden and Cinderella pumpkins. Definitely bake them until soft and mushy which takes a long time, but worth it. The pumpkins get a wonderful carmelized taste. After peeling the skin off, I put the chunks in a colandar to drain off any additional liquid before putting them in the blender for a velvety smooth consistency. I've already made several recipes using pumpkin from this site! A lot cheaper (and actually taste better) than the canned stuff. Never going back!!
