Did you grow your own pumpkins this year? We had a volunteer and ended up harvesting one pumpkin from the vine. It was so early in the year that using it for Halloween was out so I decided to cook it!
It was DELICIOUS. I froze it then defrosted it on a cold day and it was a wonderful comfort food for the Fall (or winter!).

Crockpot Pumpkin Soup Recipe
Peel your pumpkin. I had help. Some people peel after cutting the pumpkin.
Cut your pumpkin in half. Scoop out all of the seeds.
Tip: Set seeds aside to soak in water overnight, then dry. These can be eaten or saved to plant for next year.
Now you can cut your pumpkin into quarters.
Cut the pumpkin into approximately 1-2″ squares.
Fill your crock pot about 80% full with the pumpkin squares. I saved the rest of squares to cook the next day. I’ll use them in another recipe.
I added the onions, butter, and garlic too.
In a separate bowl, I whipped up the rest of my ingredients, then I added them to the crockpot.
Now I just added the rest of my ingredients.
I put my crock pot on high for 4 hours, checked to see if the chunks were soft. Once soft, I turned my crock pot off to let the mixture cool, then I used a mixer to mix thoroughly.
Once COMPLETELY cool, I divided the soup into two bags (or you can use mason jars) to freeze. Label.
I love adding bacon bits to this soup and shredded cheese!
I put the rest of the pumpkin into the crock pot to cook until soft, then blended a bit. Now I can save it in the freezer (or fridge) to use instead of canned pumpkin from the store. It won’t last a very long time in the fridge so make sure to freeze it if you don’t plan to cook with it soon.
