Pumpkin purée from my sugar pumpkins

The pumkins have been sitting since being harvested. When I realized they were starting to go bad I knew it was time to preserve their goodness!

I cut the tops off and opened them all up, scooped the seeds out and cut the meat/rind into big chucks

After I made sure all the prices fit on the cookie sheets, I turned them over and cooked them until soft and the rind would peel of easily.

I got a ton of seeds out of them! I hope I dried them properly and they sprout, I’ve never dried seeds to plant in the future.

Back to business, after baking the pumpkin … I –
• scooped all the meat into the food processor

• pulsed until smooth

• made pumpkin streusel muffins (post to come soon!)
