cooling time 10 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 6 cups


  • 1 6-10 pound pie or sugar pumpkin


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F. Cover a half sheet pan with aluminum foil (optional) and spray a thin layer of non-stick cooking spray on to the foil (or pan) to prevent sticking. 
  • Remove the stem from the pumpkin and cut the pumpkin in half. 
  • Use a wide spoon to scrape out the seeds and fibers inside. Discard the seeds or clean them thoroughly for roasting later.
  • Lay the pumpkins onto the pan and roast for 45 min-1 hour. The pumpkin skin will take on a rust color when it's fully roasted and will feel soft to the touch.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and allow the pumpkin to cool for 10 minutes as they are. 
  • Peel off and discard the skin, then allow the pumpkin to cool completely. 
  • Puree the pumpkin in batches to achieve the smoothest puree possible.
  • Use your pureed pumpkin right away, or pack it into plastic freezer storage bags and freeze for later use.


  • Pureed pumpkin freezes well for six months.
  • Thaw under refrigeration a couple of hours prior to using in your recipes.
