{Step 6: Using a blender or food processor, puree the pumpkin}

{Step 7: Use or store in the fridge for up to 1 month}

So there you have it!  Really easy right?  So now what?  You can use it like any other pumpkin puree!  Some ideas:  pumpkin juice or pumpkin bacon sauce!

Mine happens to be more watery than I would like especially for baking so I will be putting it in a strainer overnight before using it to bake some Pumpkin-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies for my in-law's Thanksgiving.
