to get mashed pumpkin, I bake my fresh pumpkins. After cutting in 1/2 and removing seeds and stringy stuf. I cut down to fit on jelly jool pans and bake at 350 degree for 1/2 or so depending on oven and thicken of pumpkin. Add little water to bottom of pans for moisture while baking. Test with a fork for tender nes and softness like a bake potatoe when done. Then when cool scoop out of outer skin and blender to smoothness with a blender. Puree setting works great. Mom & Aunt show me this as a kid. We are keeping the tradation going down the generation!! Fun stuff!!! Happy Baking!! Also works with zucchini.
Noticing some remarksabout not so much pumpkin flavor if you get pumpkin pie pumpkin it will taste better. your regular large pumpkin are different tasting. just use more spices as some are suggesting!!
