Turn fresh autumn pumpkins into your own Crock-Pot Basic Pumpkin Puree with this easy 1 ingredient recipe. Use the puree for pies, baking or even baby food!
Slow Cooker Basic Pumpkin Puree
Whenever fresh pie pumpkins go on sale in the fall I like to pick up a few and make my own pumpkin puree from them so that I can use the puree in all sorts of delicious recipes.
You can sneak a little healthy pumpkin puree into all sorts of dishes without the kids even knowing it is in there. When my kids were toddlers I used to stir a few tablespoons into their macaroni and cheese…they had no clue!
And of course because this is a pure 1 ingredient food, this makes a fantastic baby food too.
If you are using this pumpkin puree in recipes like pumpkin pie or breads I recommend freezing the puree in 1 cup portions in freezer containers or food storage bags.
For baby food..I like to spoon the puree into ice cube trays and freeze. Pop the frozen cubes out of the trays and store in food storage bags in the freezer. One ice cube = 1 baby food serving!
