I had trouble finding can pumpkin lately & canning fresh pumpkin takes time w/ peeling, cooking, sticking to the pot, & putting it in jars. My mother told me about baking them. I may never use can pumpkin again. Put one small pie pumpkin in a 350 deg oven & baked for 1 1/2 hours (until real brown). Took out & cooled for about 15 min. Sliced in half, scooped out seeds and the skin literally peeled off. Put the pulp in bowl, mixed w/hand mixer & 38 oz of creamy pumpkin ready to use. So easy
