Chef's Tip:

You can make your own pumpkin purée by buying the small baking (pie or sugar) pumpkins, cutting them in half, removing seeds and baking them. Depending on the size they will need to bake for approximately 30 minutes. You know they are ready when a fork can pierce through the skin easily.

Scoop out the flesh, purée using a food processor.  Put the purée in the freezer.  Defrost the purée when you are ready to make this recipe.
