    Lots of recipes call for pumpkin puree but it can be hard to find here in Australia. It's easy to make your own and freeze for later use in pies and muffins.

    I found the best way to make pumpkin puree is to cut the pumpkin into small chunks, cover them with water, and simmer them for about 30 minutes until tender.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Simple, easy instructions for the first time pumpkin pureer, a trick to this is too not let the pumpkin get cold before scooping out the pumpkin meat..once its cold it gets hard to do.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Thanks for this basic recipie. In Germany cooking and baking with pumpkin is not very common, so I was thankful to find this. Now I can try out recipies calling for pumpkin puree.  -  29 Sep 2008
