One 25 pound pumpkin was made into 21 liters of juice. The pumpkin was
cut into small pieces, covered with water and cooked until soft, beat
into a slurry and strained through a food mill. The juice was placed in
liter jars and pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for storage.A
temperature sensor was placed in one jar to insure the inside
temperature got to 121C.The temperature senors were received recently.

I'm a bit confused. When you say "cut the pumpkin up and squeezethrough a piece of cloth" I assume your talking about the meat ofthe pumpkin. In other words the same part you would make pumpkin pie outof. Also, that part won't release much juice until it has been cookeddown, similar to making pumpkin pie or squashes. Since it is a gourd.

Could you please be a little more specific on your instructions and addadditional photos detailing each of the major steps.

I make a similar juice out of carrots, and what I do is to blend the raw carrots with water and then squeeze trough the cheesecloth. It works.

joeyoheeoh (author)KD7CAO2009-10-20

I was wondering about this too.  The pieces would have to be cooked to get them through the cheesecloth, right?  I'm assuming you bake the pumpkin like you would if making a pie (cut in half, 350 degrees for 1 hour), then juice those pieces?

What I did was buy pumpkin pie filling in a can. It's rather liquidy. Then I grabbed a large amount and put it in a clean towel over a funnel and squeezed it. Juice from it just drains through but no pumpkin does.

I am so interested to know how this tastes!! :P

No he doesn't

how come the future reading teacher said that harry potter was the grim??? and he never became the grim???

Well, didn't you notice none of her other predictions were right, XD.

i asked that question like 2 years ago lol i forgot everything about harrypotter

Jeraldo (author)eragonsdragon1012009-07-21

professor trelawney never says that harry is the grim,
she tells him that his given omen is the grim, not he himself.
by the way, this omen means a terrible future, one most likely ending in death.

dylanspace22 (author)Jeraldo2011-04-25

well doesn't everyones future end in death like.

Actually all of them were right.. that's the funny part. The part about the grim was just a mistake.. it was a dog not the grim.

Thanks for this, I made some for a Harry Potter party and it was a hit.
+ Forgive me for the spoilers. When people are wrong I feel the need to correct them.

uhm i dont get what you meen by pumpkin do you meen like the outer part or the inner goop minus the seeds?

 They mean the meat of the pumpkin, It's the thick rind of the pumpkin, minus the skin. Like the chunks that are left over when you are done carving a pumpkin (although I would get cooking pumpkins for this, not carving pumpkins, cooking pumpkins taste better).

whiteoakart (author)2007-07-30

This is great. I don't know why more people aren't rating it. Cooking is the only real magic we muggles have.

Get a regular 15oz size can of pumpkin pie filling & mix it with a box of "spice cake"; distribute evenly in muffin tin w/liners; bake 15-20min @350; after they have cooled sprinkle w/powdered sugar. Then ENJOY tasty pumpkin goodness!

T3h_Muffinator (author)jppoisl2007-07-26


like blueberry muffins? except instead of blueberries, slightly rosated pumpkin chunx? spices to taste?

No, the whole thing has to be made out of pumpkin breadish stuff.

Maddhatter3 (author)2007-07-14

Can anyone see the cup amount for the pineapple juice? I'm getting some garbled info. I'm guessing that it's a half cup. Thanks

darthmullet (author)Maddhatter32007-07-16

Thelrin (author)2007-07-13
