Yes, but you can it in chunks, not pureed. Pressure it at the right pressure for your altitude. 90 minutes for quarts, 55 minutes for pints.

The only directions for canning pumpkin and winter squash are for cubed pulp. In fact, the directions for preparing the product include the statement, "Caution: Do not mash or puree."
