Tonight I used the frozen raw pumpkin in a roast meal. The results were mixed. While it was still sweet and cooked well, the texture seemed slightly stringier than usual. My partner proclaimed that it tasted perfect, but then he will eat almost anything. The children on the other hand weren't quite convinced. My 4 year old daughter actually scraped her pumpkin onto my plate and said it tasted yuck lol. My children are definitely my harshest critics,I admit it did have a slightly different after taste but I'm not sure if that was a result of freezing in general or just because it was frozen raw. I'm hoping our next meal with the blanched frozen pumpkin will have a better result!
