1 pumpkin (about 5 pounds)


Halve pumpkin lengthwise; remove and discard seeds and fibers. Cut each half into 4 equal pieces; pare away outer skin, using small sharp knife. Cut pumpkin flesh into 1-inch cubes.

Steam pumpkin over boiling water until tender when pierced with knife, about 15 minutes. Drain, pat dry with paper toweling. Place pumpkin cubes, in batches, in food processor with metal blade or in blender; process until smooth.


Be sure you to use a small pumpkin that is good for cooking. Such varieties include Small Sugar, Connecticut Field and Bush.
