How to Roast a Pumpkin
This is my how-to on the easiest way to roast a pumpkin! You will be able to make several recipes out of the pumpkin depending on the size of the pumpkin.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut pumpkin in half or into several pieces, whichever is easiest for the size pumpkin you are using.
Scoop out the seeds.
Place on baking sheet and coat with cooking fat and salt and pepper if desired.
Roast for 30 minutes. Then test it with a fork. If the fork goes through easily, it is done. If it is still hard, keep cooking. Be careful not to burn it!
Let the pumpkin cool slightly. Then scoop out the pumpkin from the skin. Store in the refrigerator until you're ready to use it!
Optional: add to the food processor for a smoother pumpkin puree.
If you want a smoother pumpkin puree, add the cooked pumpkin to a food processor and pulse on high until it reaches your desired consistency.
Freeze any leftover pumpkin in an airtight ziplock bag for up to 3 months!
