Want to make Homemade Pumpkin Puree? Here is how:
  1. Add 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot insert.
  2. Cut the stem of a sugar or pie pumpkin so it fits easily in the 6-quart Instant Pot. I usually buy a pumpkin that is around 3 lbs. 
  3. Place the pumpkin on the trivet and pressure cook for 12-15 mins followed by natural pressure release. 
  4. Allow the pumpkin to cool down. Take the pumpkin out and peel it. Cut it into half and take all the seeds out. Mash them with a potato masher or you can also blend for a smoother puree. Keep refrigerated for up to a week.
  1. You can also use cut pumpkin piece that is sold in Indian grocery stores. Peel and cube pumpkin into 2-inch pieces. Place them on a steamer basket.  Place steamer basket in the Instant Pot. Pressure Cook for 4 minutes followed by Quick Release. Allow the pumpkin pieces to cool down and then mash them. Keep refrigerated for up to a week.
  2. Check out the detailed post that includes step-by-step photos on how to make the puree.
