Help with my pumpkin soup

jellybeanbee04, May 25, 6:56am
Made pumpkin soup today in my crockpot (adapted some recipes I seen one here to what I liked the sound of). But its abit stringy/hairy. Have whizzed sticked it all up, but was all still in there. Did I not cut enough of the seed area out or was it something else?

probably the pumpkin, some are not nice and are stringy.

I agree you may have not taken the insides back to firm pumpkin flesh.
Would baking it in the oven first make it a better consistency, certainly adds to the depth of flavour?

worst thing to do is to boil the arse out of pumpkin. it looses all its flavour. you should cook until just barely soft

some pumpkin just suck, you cant do a thing with them but throw them out.

yeah the butter nutpumpkins this year tend to be very stringy, almost like a spaghetti squash
