Preparing Fairytale Pumpkin for freezing
The pumpkin at top of page is from the family of Fairytale Pumpkins. Their meat is sweet and excellent for use in baking. Wash outside, then cut in half and scoop seeds and membrane out.
Place cut side down in pan.
Pumpkin is Ready to Cool
Bake in 350 degree oven until soft, but firm when pricked with fork. Time will be determined by how large the pumpkin is. This one took 2 hours. Remove and allow to cool until able to handle. Pull peel off. Use blender or food processor to process the meat in batches, until smooth.
I place 1 1/2 cups into freezer bags. (Enough for one 9" pie) Keep in freezer 3-6 months. Made 7 bags.
Thank you Tammara! Note: If too juicy after blending, let drain from cheesecloth covered fine sieve until thickened. It should be mushy, but not runny.
