Yum Jen, that looks good. I would totally be interested to know if you think the taste is worth the extra effort... I've been contemplating trying the same thing... I love seeing what you make! It is inspiring! Hope you and baby are doing great!
I have only made pumpkin like this by boiling it (for baby food) but I later learned that it supposedly doesn't taste as flavorful as roasting it does - like you did. I will give this a try. Libby pumpkin is $1.68 a can and that is just a crime.
Rachel - thanks! I did make some pumpkin rice pudding out of it (which I should post about...) and the pumpkin flavor, I thought, was good - like the canned stuff! (the pudding wasn't my very favorite...)Kathleen - how long did you have to boil it for? that sounds interesting...
I boiled mine last year and just used a carving pumpkin. Although milder in flavor, we still enjoyed using the puree for pumpkin butter, pumpkin oatmeal, bread, muffins, etc...Thanks for the link, I'm going to try roasting one this year. I actually have 3 carving pumpkins and one pie pumpkin that I plan on cooking for puree...We'd love to hear about your adventures with using your pumpkin puree!
My biggest problem with pumkins- while roasting the seeds i always forget to check on them often enough! They have always burned and that smell lingers!
