How much fresh pumpkin should be used?
Can you use fresh pumpkin instead of canned? I oven roasted and cubed (skin removed) a pumpkin in the fall and then froze for later use. Would I have to thaw and pre-puree the pumpkin before using it?
what do you mean with "steam" - does this blendder warm up food???
Is it necessary to saute onions and roast garlic before blending?
