  • 1 4-5lb pumpkin peeled, deseeded and chopped into pieces


  • Cover the bottom of a large pot with water. Add the pumpkin and cover the pot with a lid. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  • Cook the pumpkin for 10-15 minutes, or until buttery-tender. Stir from time to time to make sure it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot. Add a little more water if necessary during cooking.
  • Once the pumpkin is tender, drain well. Add back to the pot and put over low heat. Stir and let any excess water steam off until the pumpkin is mostly dry.
  • Blend the pumpkin until smooth. Allow to cool to room temperature before packing and freezing for up to 3 months (see post for details).
