Pumpkin Puree Process

We have had the honour of a lot of fresh large ripe pumpkins growing in the field and so while some may go to Halloween, the rest must be processed for puree and frozen for future awesome meals and snacks.

This year has been a lot of fun with acorn squash, pumpkins, zucchini all growing really well in this Summer and Fall seasons of 2023.

Nice Ripe Pumpkin ready for processing
Cut the pumpkin into large chunks, remove the skin and put in a large pot with some water in the bottom 1-2 cups for steaming, not boiling the pumpkin pieces
Drain the pumpkin pieces and the blend with a hand blender in the pan or mixing bowl. Ready for use in your recipes for pumpkin pancakes or pumpkin banana bread.
