Cut the tops off your pumpkins
Cut the pumpkins in half, from top to bottom
Scoop out the insides of the pumpkins
Place the pumpkins face down on a baking sheet
Add about 1/4 inch of water around them
Bake at 350 for 60-90 minutes, checking periodically after 60 minutes
They are finished when a fork slides in easily
Let the pumpkin cool and then scoop the meat out into a blender
If you want the puree to be more like what you get out of the can, drain the puree in a colander set over a pot. I found that paper towels worked great for lining the colander.
