3 Potimarron (Japanese chestnut pumpkin) purée : Photo of step #3...for 10 minutes maximum, until potimarron pieces are soft (check with the point of a knife, which should go in easily). 10 min.
4 Potimarron (Japanese chestnut pumpkin) purée : Photo of step #4Drain off as much water as possible by tipping up the pan, then blend thoroughly.

If you have problems blending puree because it is too thick, add a little milk.
5 min.

For immediate use, I suggest you add a little cream, a little butter and pepper.

It will then be perfectly smooth and creamy.

Remarks

Of course, if you don't have potimarron you can do the same thing with normal pumpkin but the flavour is not so good.
