Processing Pumpkins: Step-by-Step Videos

Recently Bren Haas and I got together to talk fresh pumpkin processing. Together we hosted #CanningLive: Pumpkin Edition. Our previous #CanningLive event covered applesauce making & preserving, but this time we thought it would be fun to share the process via Periscope videos.

In case you missed it, the videos are below. Each shows a phase in the process from fresh pumpkin to puree to pie. You can also check out my previous blog on pumpkin processing, plus lots of pumpkin recipes including pumpkin cinnamon rolls and my favorite pumpkin pie.

One big Fairytale pumpkins will provide you with pies all year!

not recommend canning pumpkin puree.
