1 45 lbs. of sugar or pie pumpkin (pie pumpkins are typically smaller)1 cup of waterCooking spray*Preheat oven to 450.*Cut the pumpkin in half. Be careful doing this as pumpkins are both round and tough which makes them difficult to cut.*Scoop out the seeds and fibers from the inside of the pumpkin and place in a bowl reserved for roasted pumpkin seeds.*Line a cookie sheet with foil and mist with cooking spray.*Spray cut side of pumpkin with cooking spray and then place cut side down on cookie sheet. Spray skin of pumpkin, as well. Add water to the pan.*Roast pumpkin for 45 minutes or until a fork easily pierces the skin. The skin will turn a deep orange.*Allow pumpkin to cool until you can touch it and then scoop the flesh out and place in the bowl of a food processor.*Puree the pumpkin until very smooth. For added smoothness, push the puree through a sieve or ricer to remove any particles. You're now ready to make pumpkin everything.*And for a delicious and healthy snack, rinse off those seeds you set aside, spread them out in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet, sprinkle with some salt and roast them for a few minutes with the pumpkin. Just keep an eye on them, you don't want them to burn.
