Pumpkin Process

Today is pumpkin pie baking day... but the process must start ahead of time! No canned Libby's pureed pumpkin here, but thank goodness we have fresh pumpkin! It takes awhile to get it to the stage where you can bake with it, so here it goes!

Fresh pumpkin from the market. Luckily it's already sliced!















First I rinse it...



Then chop into smaller pieces...



Steam,



Scrape the good stuff of the skin...



And then blend with my handy dandy blender...




















and just like that... we have fresh pureed pumpkin ready for pie!















Happy Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie eating to all! We have SO much to be thankful for!
