Pureed Pumpkin (adapted from Joy of Cooking)
To cook the pumpkin, wash and cut it in half crosswise. Remove seeds and strings. Place in a foil lined pan, shell side up, and bake it in a 325 degree oven for 1 hour or more, deppending on the size, until it is tender and begins to fall apart. Scrape the pulp from the shell and put it in a blender or a food processor.
Store in 2 cup increments in freezer ziplock bags.
