Pumpkin – In baking recipes we will always be referring to what’s known in the USA as Solid Pumpkin Pack. This is simply the flesh of the fresh pumpkin that has been roasted, scooped out, pureed and then commercially canned.
I have a brand preference in pumpkin and that for me will always be Libby’s.
I have tried other brands and in my opinion they just haven’t made the grade. Perhaps due to the fact that it turns out that some canned pumpkin is actually squash. Some manufacturers make “pumpkin” puree from one or more kinds of winter squashes such as butternut, Hubbard, and Boston Marrow, which can be less stringy and richer in sweetness and color.
You can of course make your own Pumpkin Puree I do find however that the homemade version is alot more liquid than its canned counterpart.
Either way you choose, you can’t go wrong with Pumpkin Desserts!
1 – 16 ounce can of pure pumpkin = 448g (2cups)
