From the “I’m sure everyone else has already figured this out department,” I have been notorious for opening a big can of pumpkin, and using only a small portion for a recipe. The rest of the can gets stuck in the fridge only to be discovered weeks later when the pumpkin has morphed from leftover to science experiment. This time I vowed to change my pumpkin wasting ways. I took two of my favorite 1 cup prep bowls, spooned the pumpkin into them, and popped them in the freezer. A day later, I pulled them out, popped them out of the bowls, and transferred them to a freezer bag. Now I have 1 cup of pumpkin all measured out next time I need it. It’s a food preservation victory!
