Pumpkin puree



4 pie pumpkins (2-5lb each)

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. all spice

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp. cloves

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Wash and cut pumpkins in half.  Clean/scoop seeds and save for snacks later.

Place pumpkin halves face down on parchment lined sheet pans.  Bake until soft (about 1/2 hour).  Remove from oven and cool.

When cool, remove outer skin and blend pumpkin pulp with sugar and spices in a food processor or blender until smooth.  Use in your favourite recipes (pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake...).
