I love pie season. The way it makes my house smells. So this weekend I made a pumpkin in my pressure cooker.
Here is what I did
Grabbed a pumpkin that’s labeled pumpkin pie.
I have a 6qt so the one I got is smaller than you can get for an 8qt.
Cleaned the outside of the pumpkin with water.
Cut the top of my pumpkin off so it could fit.
Removed all the seeds so I could roast them.
After cleaned and gutted I placed the pumpkin in the pressure cooker with 2 cups of water.
Closed the lid and cooked for 16 minutes.
Once the pressure cooker beeped at me I opened the valve and released the pressure.
I opened the lid and saw what you see in front of you. I laid down on some parchment paper. Slowly with a knife, I cut off the outside piece. Next, I used my immersion blender and blended it up. With the pumpkin puree, I made a pumpkin cheesecake. Check out that recipe at this link.
