Do you ever get your pumpkin for cooking from pie pumpkins?

I've never done it before but each year I try to do more from scratch. I wanted to attempt it before thanksgiving in case it was hard but it was pretty easy! I found 6 pumpkins for 59 cents each on sale and it made way too much pumpkin lol! Oh well, now I know and we will have a freezer full of pumpkin for various things. I let the kids help and they loved it! I'll post some pics below but here is the link I used. And we cooked the seeds from inside too! I love fall =)

If you can it in pints, it's the perfect portion for a pie...

One of the things on my radar this year is Pumpkin Butter.  (It's like Apple Butter, but made from pumpkins).  I'll try my hand at it when the pumpkins go on sale after Halloween...
