Fall-inspired baking is in full swing around here and this year, for the first time, I decided to try to make my own pumpkin puree.  It was so simple, I’ll probably never buy it canned again! As long as you have a slow cooker and a few hours to sit back and do nothing while the slow cooker does all the work, you’ve got everything you need to make your own. It was a great activity for our resident toddler baker and it was absolutely delicious. If you’ve been waiting to try to make your own, here is your motivation to give it a go. I used 1 “pie pumpkin” from the grocery store and it yielded around 16 ounces of puree – enough for 1 deep dish pumpkin pie and a little more for our morning oatmeal!
