Pumpkin Fun

So, after roasting for about an hour, I let our Jack O' Lantern cool. 

I drained probably 1/2 a gallon of water from the bottom of the pan. 

The next step was to scoop the flesh from inside the pumpkin.

I ran it all through a food processor next.  It took me half the batch before I realized that I should be squeezing out as much of the water as possible before processing. 

I moved it from the processor to a colander and let excess water drain out. 

All in all, there was about a gallon of water drained off...they weren't kidding when they said there was a lot of water in Jack O' Lantern pumpkins. 

I'm going to test it out in a Pumpkin Bread tonight...stay tuned...
