No, you’re not going crazy. My weekly video post is up one day early. I won’t be available to post tomorrow, so I thought it best to put it up today! I had fun with pumpkins this weekend â€“ a little carving, some puree, a loaf of pumpkin bread, a pumpkin doughnut…that all happened. Tis the season, I guess.
In this week’s video, I share with you just how easy it is to make your own pumpkin puree. I will concede that opening a can is indeed easier, but with about 15 minutes of hands-on time, you can make your own from scratch â€“ delicious, unprocessed, in-season pumpkin puree.
Now, I will warn you that there is about a 20 second segment in this video that is horribly unfocused. If only I could be behind the camera and in front of it at once! The content just wouldn’t make sense if I left it out and since I had already roasted and pureed both of my pumpkins, I couldn’t reshoot. So, in the loop it stayed â€“ in all its imperfect glory. It’s human. And clearly, I’m rolling with it. I hope you all have a lovely week! Get yourself a pumpkin!
