Yesterday I put up a 30 lb pumpkin. One of the husbands client's gave it to him. I first cut up the pumpkin. Then cut the big chunks into smaller chunks. Then cut off the rind and put in a huge stock put. I barley covered the pumpkin chunks with water and boiled for about 30 minutes. I checked the chunks and made sure they were tender. After letting the cooked pumpkin cool I drained off the water and using the blender pureaed the pumpkin. Then strained the water off using a cheese cloth. I got 12 cups of pumpkin. SO that should be 6 pies. And fresh pumpkin seeds. Man they were good after I roasted them.
