    Cooking Know-How:

    Mashed, cooked fresh pumpkin might have a higher moisture content than canned pumpkin purée. For best results, do not substitute canned pumpkin purée in recipes calling for homemade mashed pumpkin.


    For easier slicing, wrap bread in plastic wrap and store overnight before cutting into slices
