    This is my first year having enough pumpkin to can.

    Any good recipes?

    I have fond memories of a pumpkin butter, and my husband wants pumpkin pie filling that he can just dump into a pie crust and toss in the oven.

    Quote:Saw your question in the canning section as well and here is a link that talks about pumpkin.
    Other canners have referred to this site before and it seems reliable.

    I pressure canned cubes of pumpkin last year quite successfully. Once drained, a quart winds up being about 2 cups, which is the same as a regular sized can of pumpkin from the store. I *loved* having the canned pumpkin, which I got for free from a veggie stand the day after Halloween.
