Q: I bought five pie pumpkins for this baking season, but for work reasons i've hardly had time to bake (or cook!) at all. I don't want them to go bad, of course.
Is there a way to store them? Freezing them? Making puree and freezing it?

Editor: Tania, yes! Go ahead and bake the pumpkins and make puree. Then freeze it for up to a few months; this is a great way to preserve fresh pumpkin puree.
