Bake your own pumpkin I tell ya!

Before:

Buy a “sugar” or “pie” pumpkin … about 3ish pounds. They have sweeter more concentrated flavor. Cut the pumpkin in half, take out the seeds and pulp – save the seeds for roasting! Put halves in a shallow baking dish face down and cover with foil! Bake at 375 for about an hour or until tender to the fork stab. Let it cool enough to handle.

It will be really soft, and come off the skin easily. Put flesh into a food processor and puree!

Then you have it… make a pie, bread or anything – or freeze it for later!

After: ….If you care to know! =)
