Cooking pumpkins

I have been working on cooking from scratch for my family these past couple months.  After many raving reviews about how good fresh pumpkin is, I decided to give it a try. They smelled very good while they were cooking.  I as able to get about 8 cups of fresh pumpkin.  I froze 2 cups per freezer bag to use in the future.
First I oiled the pumpkins with coconut oil.

Next I cooked them until I could pierce them with a knife easily.

I then cleaned out the seeds and slimy strings.

Then I pureed the flesh. (Note to self, I need a bigger food processor) 

Some of the pureed flesh.

8 cups of pureed pumpkin ready for the freezer!
