Transcript:Tips for Cooking With Pumpkin Puree

Hi there, I’m Abby Feldman for About.com. Pumpkin puree is a great ingredient for all of your favorite recipes. It can be bought in a can or made fresh at home. Today, we’ve got some great tips on cooking with this festive ingredient.

Pumpkin Puree Comes In Spiced and Plain Varieties

Decide what recipe you’ll be making before buying the puree. Depending on the recipe you may want plain puree or one with spices already added.

Use Pumpkin Puree In Quick Desserts

For an easy and delicious low calorie dessert, try mixing equal parts pumpkin puree and cool whip for a delicious pumpkin mousse. Or, make a classic pumpkin pie. Freezing pumpkin puree into one-cup portions will give you the flexibility of using as little or as much as you want… with very little fuss.

Freeze Pumpkin Puree to Use All Year Round

Freezing the puree also gives you the whole year to enjoy, because the festive flavors shouldn’t stop after fall!
