This time of year pumpkin is in! So I decided to make some fresh pumpkin puree to put into all sorts of things. You can do cookies, muffins, waffles, soup and so much more.

Making fresh pumpkin can be a little time consuming though so just a heads up. Get ready for some delicious fresh pumpkin treats.

First you need to cut the pumpkin in half and then start scooping and cleaning it.

Now it's time to cut and peel all the skin off ( the time consuming part)

Cut the pumpkin into small quarters and put in a saucepan to boil.

Boil them about 25 minutes until soft and throw them in the blender.

Then you can scoop out your desired measurement and use to pumpkin up any recipe really!
