Home Made Pumpkin Puree

What am I doing today? Well I decided that it was time to cook up the unused pumpkins we had on hand, before they went bad, so that we could have plenty pumpkin puree on hand for the Holidays.  Although it's not a glamorous job- someone needed to do it and besides homemade pumpkin puree is arguably much better than the canned version. Yes- I could go to all the trouble of recounting my tales of triumph over the pumpkins today but again Ree Drummond has produced what I think is hands down the best instruction I have found.

Here are my favorite recipes that we use pumpkin puree in:

Pumpkin Pie Bran Muffins
Pumpkin Bread
Pumpkin Cheesecake
Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
Pumpkin Fruit Dip
Pumpkin Bundt Cake
