Homemade Pumpkin Puree

Now that halloween has passed you may have some extra pumpkins hanging around. I love pumpkin flavored... well anything. I try to avoid pumpkin in a can and love to make it homemade. It is way too easy, and too yummy not to! Follow this easy Alton Brown recipe.

I like to season mine with salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. If I am getting crazy I'll add in a little goat cheese!  OR I like to make an easy 4 ingredient pancake with it:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg (yolk and whites!! this holds the pancake together)
  • 2tbs of pumpkin puree
  • cinnamon/ pumpkin spice

Mix together well. Heat up and grease your pan.  Make your pancakes and enjoy! What do you add into your puree?
