I’ve always wanted to make my own homemade pumpkin pie, and by that I mean fully homemade. Cook my own pumpkin, and try to do it as organically as possible. Now I’ve actually developed quite the system for boiling baking pumpkins.
You will need: 3 medium baking pumpkins yield 6 cups of pumpkin puree.
Cut pumpkins in half and scoop out the inside. Make sure all the gunk is cleaned off the slides.
Peel the pumpkins with a peeler. Cut off stems. Make sure you go over with a peeler twice just to get to the flesh.
Cut up pumpkin. Not into small piece just large chunks.
Boil the pumpkin for about 8 minutes, or until tender. But not so tender they’re completely breaking apart.
Strain pumpkin and let cool.
Place in bowl and squish with fork, place into blender, I use my Ninja.
( a magic bullet or anything to turn it into a puree would work)
