How to make pumpkin puree at home

After trying this recipe you won't ever buy canned pumpkin puree again. It is so easy to make and so tasty. In my opinion, it is the main secret ingredient to create flavorful pumpkin pies, soups or any other recipe that call for pumpkin puree. You can make this recipe with any variety of winter squash. After cooling the puree you can place it in airtight container and freeze it. It will keep for at least three months.

Homemade Pumpkin puree
Cut one pumpkin in half. Take the seeds off with a spoon.

Put each half cut side down in a baking pan. Fill it with one inch water. Bake it in a 350 oven until soft (for about one hour for a medium size pumpkin)
Let the pumpkin cool and spoon out its meat in a mixing bowl. 

Puree the meat with a fork or in a food processor. Enjoy in your favorite recipe.
