Canned Pumpkin

I don’t post a lot of ‘canning’ recipes on here because most of what I know about canning is in my head. I just do things the way I saw them done when I was young and I can’t really guarantee the accuracy of all of them.

This works well for anything that calls for store-bought canned pumpkin. We love using it in our Luscious Four-Layer Pumpkin Cake. I haven’t tried using anything other than sugar to sweeten this with but I think it would probably be ok to give it a go. This also freezes well if you don’t want to can it.
