For a burst of flavor! Bake your pumpkin, it is not a big deal! Turn your oven on to 400F. Cut the pumpkin into big pieces, take the seed out.(SEEDS CAN BE ROASTED LATER). Toss pumpkin pieces with some olive oil.Sprinkle with salt, add a stick or two of cinnamon sticks for flavor. Roasting will bring a burst of true flavor! Roast till done.Mash the pulp or put through a strainer. Cool & measure then set aside for the "CHIFFON PIE." recipe that follows.
