Pumpkin Baking with Link Up

Today is the  Tasty Treats Link Up and I’m sharing how to bake a whole pumpkin in the oven and make your own pumpkin puree. It is super easy and I LOVE that my mother in law shared this trick with me. My son said that the pumpkin bread I made with my pumpkin puree was the best he’d ever had!  :)

 

Please share only your recipe posts here, tomorrow is when I host a share everything link up!

 Baking a Pumpkin

Step One

Place it on cookie sheet.

Cut slits on all sides.

STEP TWO

Bake in a 350 degree oven for approx. one hour.

Insert knife to check for readiness.

It is ready when the inserted knife slides in easily, like when you check a potato.

STEP THREE

Remove the stem and cut it in half.

STEP SEVEN

Place the filling in a bowl and mash.

You could also use a food processor or blender I’m sure to quicken the puree process.
