Erin SheehanWe grow a lot of pumpkin and winter squash. I like to make pumpkin soup, bread, waffles, cookies, you name it. Pumpkin makes everything better, right? This is a Sweet Meat pumpkin from our garden.

Until recently I processed my pumpkins in the oven by cutting them open and baking them. But I find that method dries the flesh too much for my taste. Instead I use my pressure cooker. It takes a bit longer because I can only do half or even less of one at a time, but I fit it in while I’m doing other things in the kitchen.

From November through January, I’ll process one or two pumpkins a week and use them as I go along. Here’s how I do it in the pressure cooker.
