Slice the top off the pumpkin, about 2 inches below the stem. Place the flat side down and slice the pumpkin in half.

Scoop out the seeds and stringy pulp from the pumpkin with a spoon. Discard or save the seeds to make roasted pumpkin seeds.

Place the pumpkin halves flesh side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Roast the pumpkin halves in the oven for 40-50 minutes, until the center of the pumpkins start to fall and the skin begins to peel up from the sides.

Let the pumpkin halves cool until you are able to handle them. Carefully peel the skin off of the flesh of the pumpkins.

This is how the pumpkins will look on the other side after roasting.

Cut the roasted pumpkin into chunks with a knife.

Place the roasted pumpkin chunks into a food processor.

Process on high until the pumpkin puree is pretty smooth. Some small chunks are to be expected.

Let cool completely before using in a recipe.
