Cooking Know-How

Mashed, cooked fresh pumpkin might have a higher moisture content than canned pumpkin purée. For best results, do not substitute canned pumpkin purée in recipes calling for homemade mashed pumpkin.

Preparing Pumpkin Purée from Fresh Pumpkin

Cut a 4- to 5-lb. pumpkin in half with a large knife. Scoop out seeds and stringy fiber. Cut pumpkin into 1-1/2-inch cubes. Place pumpkin in large saucepan. Add water to 1-inch depth. Bring to boil; cover. Reduce heat and simmer 25 to 30 min. or until pumpkin is tender. Drain well; cool just until pumpkin is easy to handle. Remove peel. Mash with potato masher for a chunky mixture. For a smoother consistency, process pumpkin in a food processor. Drain mashed pumpkin in sieve for about 20 min. to remove excess liquid. Store in refrigerator up to 5 days. Cooked pumpkin can also be frozen up to 6 months in resealable freezer-weight plastic bags.


For easier slicing, wrap bread in plastic wrap and store overnight before cutting into slices.

    This is fantastic! I doubled the recipe to make 2 loaves, used 1 large can of pumpkin and by accident used too much chocolate morsels! I ended up using twice as much as recipe called for, but I'll never regret more chocolate! Delicious and a holiday hit at Thanksgiving.

    Good recipe esp. if You dont care for pumpkin flavor. Has a much stronger choc. flavor. Next time I will you semi sweet morsels just for ease.
