Homemade PumpkinPuree

I don’t like to waste things, Halloween pumpkins included.

Of course we always roast the seeds, but the last few years I have been using the entire pumpkin for puree.

Canned puree is good, and definitely convenient,but homemade is easy to do and like most things, MUCH better than its canned counterpart.
