Hi Bold Bakers!
Pumpkin Puree is called for in so many recipes when the Fall rolls around but it’s not always widely available, so what do we do we find ourselves in that situation? We make it ourselves!
All you need to make Homemade Pumpkin Puree is a Sugar Pumpkin, also known as a Pie Pumpkin. These are small orange pumpkins. This is what is traditionally used for pie making. If you use other pumpkins just note the flavor and texture may vary.
Great! You now know how to make it but where can I use it? I have you covered. Have you tried my Pumpkin Pie Egg Rolls or my Pumpkin Pie in a Mug? These are fantastic recipes that are warm, spicy and scream Fall flavors.
Homemade pumpkin puree will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks and will keep in the freezer for 6 months. Then as you do your Holiday baking you will have Homemade Pumpkin Puree ready to go for sweet and even savory dishes.
- 2 sugar pumpkins (aka pie pumpkins)
- Preheat oven to 350oF / 180oC.
- Carefully cut each pumpkin and cut in half and cut the stems off.
- Scoop out the inside seeds with a spoon and discard or save for something else.
- Place the pumpkin halves cut side down on a parchment-lined baking tray.
- Pop into the oven for roughly 1 hour or until a fork slides through easily.
