Homemade Pumpkin Puree

This is the EASIEST thing to do!

You will have more pumpkin than you know what to do with. It is also so much less expensive than buying it canned at the store.


  • 1 medium pumpkin
  • That's it!

Pre-heat your oven to 400 F.

Put the whole pumpkin on a baking sheet.

Roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the size of your pumpkin. You will know it's done when it is brown on the outside and fork tender.

Let cool then slice in half. Scoop out all the fibers and seeds (rinse and dry if you are going to bake after).

Scoop the pumpkin into a food processor and puree until smooth. Add a tiny bit of water if needed to help along.

Store in freezer safe bags - I portioned mine out into about 2 cups so it will be easy to thaw and use.

**I was skeptical about putting the whole pumpkin in the oven but it worked perfectly! It makes it so much easier to cut in half after it's cooked rather than before.**
