Hey pixels!! Are you waiting for Halloween? Here we don’t celebrate it so much. I don’t celebrate Halloween at all. But this year I want to try some pumpkin recipes.

I want to make a pumpkin pie, and pumpkin puree is an essential ingredient of most of the recipes. I think you can buy a canned version, but you can’t find it here. So I’m going to make my own home made puree. Hey, home made is better, isn’t it?

Actually is easier as I thought it was. Is just a one ingredient recipe, and the hardest part is to cut your pumkint into chunks. The rest cannot be easier!!

Oh, keep in touch, my happy pixels!! Soon I’ll introduce to you my first pumpkin pie!! I couldn’t be more excited!!🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 pumpkin (mine was about 1400g)

Directions:

Cut the pumpkin into quarters, then peel and cut into chunks. Place in a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil.

Cook for 20′ or until pumpkin is tender. Drain well and allow to cool. Then puree the flesh in a food processor.

If kept in a suitable container, it can be refrigerated for up to 3 days, or deep freeze for 3-6 months.
