Since people have posted on here how much they love canned pumpkin I thought I’d point out that you can get pumpkins really cheap right now. This year I grew two pumpkins and a farmer gave me two huge ones.
It’s a lot of work but I prpare them by cutting in half, scooping out and baking at 350F for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Then I scoop out the flesh, puree with a blender and freeze in ice cube trays. My freezer must have about 30 pounds of frozen pumpkin cubes that can be used in soups, sauces, breads and shakes.
