Before we start baking, let's talk about something important. I've received a few emails over the past few months regarding pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling. Most of the pumpkin recipes you see on this site call for Pumpkin Puree. So what is the difference between the two?
Pumpkin puree is just as the can says, it's cooked, pureed pumpkin. Nothing has been added to it. On the other hand pumpkin pie filling is flavored with spices such as cinnamon, clove, allspice and ginger.
There's also sugar added to pumpkin pie mix. It's an easy way to make pumpkin recipes with all the spices and sugar added.

Frequently Asked Pumpkin Questions
Yes, you can freeze raw or cooked pumpkin in either freezer safe bags or containers for up to three months.
Leftover canned pumpkin only lasts for about a week when stored in the refrigerator. You can easily place the leftover canned pumpkin in ice cube trays and then pop out the cubes once frozen to store in freezer safe bags.
In the past, I have measured out 1 cup scoops of canned pumpkin and placed in freezer bags. That way I have pre-measured pumpkin ready to go for recipes.
Allow pumpkin to thaw in the refrigerator overnight. When the pumpkin is defrosted it might be a little watery. Stir the pumpkin puree to incorporate the water and it should be fine to use in recipes.
