I am big on things from scratch. But the one thing I've never tried (kind of been afraid to) was baking a real pumpkin to use in my pumpkin muffins, cheesecakes, etc. I couldn't believe my cousin Ryan...a non-domestic man, did this. My non-cooking friend Sam also did it. How is it, I "couldn't". Then I saw them do it quickly one day on the tv show The Chew. I can do this! So today, I did! :) Not hard at all, my only concern was how to know it was done enough. I'm now convinced it is. But my question for those of you who have done this before, is do you put it in the food processer to make it extra smooth? Or do you cook with it just pulled out of the skin, or fork-mashed? TIA
