To make your own highly flavorful pumpkin puree, here is what you do:

If you are using a 3 to 4 pound pumpkin, bake it whole on a baking sheet in a 350 F° oven until a sharp knife easily pierces through to the seed cavity, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. When it is cool enough to handle, peel away the skin, cut it in half, remove the seeds and fibers, and mash the soft flesh with a potato masher or process in a food processor. For a larger pumpkin, cut in half or into wedges before baking.
