On a late night run to the grocery store for some emergency Ramen noodles, I discovered that they were selling baking pumpkins! I was so excited I bought two. I ended up with a lot of extra puree, which means I'll probably make pumpkin pancakes, soup or something else with it.
Don't forget to save the seeds and roast them too, with a little salt!
Scoop out all that goop!
I baked the pumpkins at 350 degrees for an hour and a half, cut side down on a baking sheet.
Toast the pumpkin seeds at 350 for maybe 10 minutes? I took them out once I heard them start popping inside the oven and they came out fine. Check them often to make sure you don't burn them.
I pureed it in the blender. Yum! This is a good idea for baby food.
