Pupkin Bread From Scratch

Last week, I finally decided to cut open the fairytale pumpkin. I used to use canned pumpkin, until I thought that I could use a fresh pumpkin. I used to also cook the pumpkin in the oven, but of course changed how I did things. I now shred the pumpkin, like you would zucchini, or carrots.

First, I cut a whole in the top of the pumpkin, and then cut up the pumpkin in slices. The outside is easier to cut off when the pieces are placed on their side.

It is some work to cut up the pumpkin,but really not that much because of how I choose to cut it up. It helps to have a sharp knife.

I shredded the pumpkin in our food processor, which was so quick and easy. This pumpkin yielded 31 cups of shredded pumpkin, and I only paid between 4 and 5 dollars.

This pumpkin yielded would yield 20 loaves of pumpkin bread, but my oldest son wanted some pumpkin pie made with the fresh pumpkin as well.
