Making Pumpkin Puree is easier than you think. Pumpkin Puree is great for more than just pies and muffins (although that is a good enough reason by itself!) But you can make your own puree to use instead of oil in your baking (just like applesauce!), or even as baby food.
Whether you only want to puree the pumpkin from your porch after the holidays, or you are like me and make a few batches in bulk by purchasing pumpkins after Halloween when stores are desperate to get rid of their left overs, making your own puree only take a few steps.
