Pumpkin Puree
Grab one of our organic pie pumpkins and follow the directions below.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the pumpkin in half, stem to base. Remove seeds and pulp.
  • Bake in the preheated oven, cut side down on baking sheet. Bake until the pumpkin can easily be pierced with a knife in several places and the flesh is pulling away from the skin, about 45 minutes..
  • Allow to cool. Scrape pumpkin meat from each half and puree in a blender until very smooth, about 3 – 5 minutes. Use what you need and store the rest. Will be good in the refrigerator for about a week and frozen for three months.
