I know that fall is right around the corner when I start to see those sweet little sugar pumpkins at the store and the farmer’s market! Once I’m finished using them as fall decor, I like to bake them and use them in pumpkin recipes! Here’s “How to Bake a Pumpkin”!
Baking pumpkins is easy to do! It’s so worth taking a little time to process these nutrient-packed little pumpkins to use in muffins, cakes, pancakes or even smoothies! Here’s how to do:
Wash your pumpkins exterior well, split in two and remove seeds, discarding stem. Place pumpkins face down on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees until tender, close to an hour.
Then scrape the pumpkin out of shell, actually it should just about fall !
Puree in food processor until smooth. I like to measure out 2 cups and then put into zip lock bags. Then lay them flat on a cookie sheet to freeze!
You can use this puree in any recipe that calls for canned pumpkin! Awesomeness!!
