Below I will share with you my easiest recipes which I make regularly.  And instructions for cooking pumpkin to use in recipes.  I always have some pumpkin on hand, and put lots in the oven to cook if I have a roast on the go, or if I'm baking.  Then I make some puree.  It freezes well, so it's good to put small portions in the freezer for later use. 

All of the recipes can also be made with canned pumpkin if fresh is not available.  It has lots of vitamin A in it, and if you buy the organic variety shown here, you can be sure it is very healthy. 

Many of the recipes are also gluten free.  Pumpkin is a fantastic ingredient for those on a gluten free diet as it is great for thickening, and a good source of carbohydrate instead of bread.
