How to make Pumpkin Puree at Home?/Home Made Pumpkin Puree - Steaming Method

Making pumpkin puree at home is easy and you can store it for months (about 6 months) if you freeze it or you can refrigerate for weeks (about 2 weeks). Whenever you make a pumpkin recipe thaw it and use it. I have used steaming method to make puree. Since I didn't get the golden pumpkin, I used the green one.


  • Pumpkin – 1 small size


Wash th pumpkin, remove the stem and slice the pumpkin in half. Scoop out the seeds and fibrous strands. Cut each half into four pieces.

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Steam the pumpkin pieces on a rack for 35-40 minutes. Remove from steamer and let it cool.

Remove the skin and add the pumpkin in a blender and blend it till you get a puree.

Pumpkin puree is ready to be used. If you don’t have the intention to use it at once divide the puree into small portion and freeze it or refrigerate it.
