I roasted them them over the weekend and ended up with a few cups of puree. It was a dark golden color, had good consistency and a nice flavor. I wished I had had more pumpkins.
My wish came true on Wednesday. During a class at the Y, I noticed a basket of sugar pumpkins tucked in the back of room. They looked as if they were about to be thrown out. I suspected they had been Halloween decorations. So I stopped by the front desk and inquired if they needed a home. They said I could take what I wanted. I grabbed the best looking ones and walked out with my arms full, trying hard not to drop them. Serendipity!
