Just because it’s December I refuse to come to terms with Pumpkin season being over. Pumpkin season isn’t over just because it’s no longer October. Hello! We have pumpkin pie in November! Either way, I tend to eat pumpkin year round. I make my own canned pumpkin to turn into puree and pumpkin butter which I use for baking and other cooking recipes.
Making canned pumpkin is relatively easy. Sometimes cutting up your pumpkin can prove to be more difficult. Right around Halloween I had about 12 pumpkins I was dealing with. I had some going in the oven, some in the microwave and some boiling in a giant pot on the stove. The microwave was the quickest method for the amount I was cooking at a time, but it was still going to take quite a bit of time to get it all done because of the small amount you can cook at a time.
