Making fresh Pumpkin for Pies!!

 Here is my pumpkin all washed and ready to be chopped up.

 I steamed the pumpkin for 45 min then I pealed the skin off and mashed it all up real good.
 The one pumpkin made 4 1/2 cups my honey thought today was the 10th. I'm sure 2 days won't matter.

I washed all the seeds now they are ready to go in a 250 degree oven for an hour. I did lightly salt them.

Hey Cherry! We've never done this before (lazy I guess) but I know pumpkin seed are really good for the body. Think I may give this a try!
