How to Puree a Pumpkin

How To Make Your Own Pumpkin Puree | A Teaspoon of Happiness

Since we’ve been living in France, I haven’t been able to find canned pumpkin. It just doesn’t exist here. I could order it only for like 5 euros a can PLUS shipping, but I just won’t do it.  Last year I decided to set out and learn how to puree a pumpkin, and I found a great tutorial over at The Pioneer Woman.

Now I’m going to show you how to do it yourself.


I used only one big pumpkin (potiron for those of you living in France).  I gutted it and sliced it into big wedges.  Then I baked them for about 45 minutes at 350°F (180°C).

After peeling off all the skins, I tossed them into a food processor *affiliate link and blended until everything was smooth.

The one pumpkin gave me 5 cups of puree, so I portioned 3 cups into individual freezer bags and save 2 cups in a container to use this week for pumpkin cookies.

There you go… Now you know how to puree a pumpkin too!
