Making your own pumpkin puree is simple to do and well worth the effort. Homemade pumpkin puree can be used for making homemade pumpkin pies from scratch or in any pumpkin recipes that call for canned pumpkin. Be sure to select a small pie pumpkin for the best results.
Once the puree is finished and cooled it can be used in your favorite pumpkin recipes, such as pumpkin cake, pumpkin bread or pumpkin bars, or it can be frozen to use at a later date. Follow our instructions in Making Homemade Pumpkin Pie from scratch to make a delicious pie that is perfect for Thanksgiving or any other special occasion.
