Save the Pumpkins!

Given that it is Halloween, I thought I would share how I save my pumpkins for later use.

I think the best way is by freezing them in convenient packets of 1 – 2 cups, so you can pull them out and use them in your favorite recipes throughout the year.

Here’s how I turned these 6 sugar pumpkins from my garden into this…

First, cut them in half and save the seeds for roasting.

Then place each half on a baking dish with a little water in the bottom.  Bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for about an hour – checking on them atIMG_1402 the end to make sure they don’t burn.

Scoop the pumpkin off the skin and put in a Food Processor.

 

I use a Food Saver to package mine up but Freezer Ziplock bags would probably work just as well.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
