Today I am going to share with you how to actually go from pumpkin to puree. Don't be intimidated! It's NOT hard! :)
You want the pumpkin's outer shell to be smooth with no weird bumps like those freeky little gourds. Nice and smooth!
Make sure there's no bug bites or holes or rotting spots. You never know what might be living in there! Bleck!
Or, you could go the easy way and find a "pie" pumpkin. Just sayin'. ;)
Step 2: Remove The Stem
Step 3: Chop!
Step 4: Scoop
Step 5: Bake
Step 6: Scoop...Again!
Here's where you do the detail scooping. Now that it's warm and smooshy the stringy stuff will scoop out easily. Scrape all that yucky stuff out!
Once that's done, you'll want a different bowl and scoop out the pumpkin flesh. It's just like scooping ice cream! And yes, I'm a pro at that. ;)
Step 7: Blend
