One of my favorite things in the fall, is that now we can get sugar pumpkins here in Guate! I got these from a friend (who happens to be also a great cook, you can see his Guest Foodie post here) and I was thrilled. These are the best pumpkins to get puree out of. Remember the pumpkins from our October wallpaper collection? From 5 pumpkins… I got 2 cups of puree. Now, from these babies, I got 2 heaping cups of delicious puree. Since I was going to make something sweet (rather than savory) out of them, I decided to sprinkle some brown sugar.
The cooking time will depend highly on your pumpkins, the best way to check if they are done is to try to insert a knife trough the skin. If it goes through smoothly… they are done!
Stay tuned for the next recipe… where we use our pumpkin puree!
