Say you have a pumpkin…
A cute one, much like this 6ish pound sugar pumpkin.
What would you do with it?
Roast the seeds?
You could do that, but here’s something else you could do…
Cut off the top
Cut it in half
Scoop out the seeds and the stringy bits
Place the pumpkin cut-side down on a greased baking sheet
Roast it for about an hour and twenty minutes (less, for a smaller pumpkin) at 350F
Make sure it’s incredibly tender
Scrape out the mushy flesh
Maniacally play with the roasted skin.
Ok, that was just me.
Transfer the pumpkin to a food processor
And create homemade, fresh pumpkin puree.
Hmmmm, now what do you think I can do with this?
