Making your own Pumpkin Puree vs. buying canned Pumpkin Puree

It is always preferred to have freshly made pumpkin puree, but since pumpkins are only available seasonally, it’s not always an option.

Buying Fresh Pumpkins

Pumpkins are commonly seen in three sizes, Miniature, pie pumpkins and carving or jack-o-lantern pumpkins.

Always choose the pie pumpkins. The miniature pumpkins are edible, but not ideal for using to make a puree. They are hard and difficult to work with. They are ideal for use as serving bowls for soups as they hold their shape and firmness.

Carving pumpkins, are the large pumpkins you see at the supermarket in the fall. They are also edible, but they are stringy, watery (when cooked) and don’t have a very strong flavour. They are unsatisfying, as you will find out if you use one to make a pie.

Choosing a pumpkin

Making your own Pumpkin Puree

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C)
  • Remove the stem and slice the pumpkin in half.
  • Remove the seeds and place the cut pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for approximately 40 to 45 minutes in the oven until the pumpkin is soft. (check with a fork)
  • When cool enough to handle, scrape the pumpkin filling off of the skin. Place into a food processor. Discard the skin.
  • Pulse until very smooth and there are no chunks or pieces left. Add tablespoons of water as needed during the pulsing.
  • Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

How to make pumpkin puree.

Buying Canned Pumpkin

Whenever you are buying pumpkin Puree, make sure that it is 100 percent pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling. For diabetic-friendly desserts, we need to eliminate sugar whenever possible. Pumpkin Pie filling has a lot of sugar in it. Sugar is usually the second ingredient on the list, right after pumpkin. Pumpkin Pie filling is also referred to as Pumpkin pie mix, on some labels.

As long as you stick with 100 percent pure pumpkin, you should be safe. Always confirm that there is no added sugar, by always checking the ingredient list.
