Fall is a time for baking. We had a pie social after church and my neighbor had a bumper crop of pumpkins. Perfect timing! My kids decided to do other flavors so they left the pumpkin to me! (oh darn!)
I loved baking as a kid but soon fell away from it as my family grew and I saw my hard work disappear before my eyes. Cooking lasted longer and I felt I could improve our health more with simple meals. Fast forward… now I am finding that with a few handy tools (Thank you BONCOOK) it’s a bit easier, faster and more rewarding. Plus, I have kids who love baking so my kitchen is gonna be a mess anyway, I might as well join the party!
I learned how to prep the puree from reading other blogs and tutorials but I’ll give you a run down in case you are interested.
Half the pumpkin and clean out seeds and strings
Bake pumpkin in a casserole dish with about 1/2″ water for 1 hour at 350
Scoop out soft flesh (once it has cooled) and puree in blender- that’s it!
Hope you are enjoying your fall and happy baking!
