How to Keep your fresh Pumpkin in the Freezer

Will you let that fresh pumpkin decorating your porch go to waste? Freeze your fresh pumpkin for a whole year and enjoy - whenever you like - my kids favorite Mediterranean Pumpkin Pie with feta cheese.

So lets find out how to freeze our fresh pumpkin:

  1. Cut the pumpkin in half and then into fourths.

  2. Use a large scoop or spoon to remove the seeds.

  3. Then cut into smaller pieces so that your pumpkin fits into your food processor.

  4. Use your food processor to coarsely grate the pumpkin.

  5. If you don’t have a food processor, you can do it very easily using you cheese grater (the coarse grating surface).

  6. Squeeze the pumpkin with your hands to remove most of the water and then place it into freezing bags.

  7. The freezing bags I prepare contain 600gr of squeezed-grated pumpkin, because this is the quantity I need to make the Mediterranean salty Pumpkin pie with feta cheese.
