    Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
    Make fresh pumpkin puree: Start with a 2- to 2½-lb. pumpkin, which will give you 2 cups puree. Split the pumpkin in half and scrape out the seeds and pulp. Place halves, cut sides down, in a baking dish. Add ½ in. of water. Bake in a 350°F. oven about 45 minutes or until a knife easily pierces the pumpkin, adding water as needed to maintain the water level. Cool the pumpkin. Scoop the flesh into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Freeze the puree for up to 3 months.
