You can forget about running to the store ever again and learn How to Make Pumpkin Puree at home with easy to follow instructions.

It’s Fall! (Well almost). That means pumpkin-flavored everything, apple picking, trick-r-treating, leaves changing, colder weather, fires, and the thought of Christmas right around the corner.

Last year I came across a little pumpkin stand on the side of the road. The price caught my eye with their two-dollar pie pumpkins. SCORE!

I usually don’t carry cash, but that day, luck was on my side. A nice twenty-dollar bill sat in my wallet staring up at me to be spent.

As I did the math in my head, paired with my love for pumpkins, I could, in fact, justify spending twenty dollars on TEN pie pumpkins.

I’m pretty sure I was unprepared for the amount of baking and pureeing I just got myself into. My love for fall and all things pumpkins got me through it – along with some cussing and help from my husband.
