Pumpkin Puree Recipe UK

There are so many fantastic recipes coming from across the pond at this time of year, but a lot of them seem to call for canned pumpkin puree. Sadly it’s very difficult to find canned pumpkin puree in the shops and while you can purchase it online for a premium, it’s so easy to make for yourself.
You can use any pumpkin really, even the Jack o’ Lantern types!


  • Preheat oven to 200 / Gas mark 6
  • Slice your pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds
  • Place a sheet of greaseproof paper on a baking tray and lay the pumpkin on it, cut side down
  • Bake for around 30 mins or until your pumpkin starts to collapse.
  • Allow the pumpkin to cool slightly, before peeling off the skin.
  • Blend the pumpkin or push it through a sieve
  • You may find that a lot of liquid separates from the flesh – pour this away
  • Store in the fridge for a couple of days or in the freezer for a couple of month

Now you just need to decide what to do with it!
