I always wondered what a regular (not sweet or pie pumpkin) would taste cooked. Well when Superking had all their halloween pumpkins marked down to 10¢ a pound - for $1.80, I got to find out!
As the first pic will show, way bigger and denser than I thought it would be!
Then washed, chopped and cleaned to be pressure cooked.
Took me multiple cycles to get it all cooked (yay extra “rings” and an extra non-stick liner, so I could wash and swap stuff out pretty quickly.)
Bottom line? It tasted like butternut squash. Great fun, I am glad I did it - it bakes and cooks well. Have tons packed in ziplocks in the freezer for future play. But for pies? I am now comfy that Libby’s is actually truly easily the awesome choice : )
