I bought this gorgeous pumpkin for $3.99.
I rinsed off the outside, cut it up and scraped out the seeds and strings (making sure to save the seeds for roasting into a healthy snack).
Then I put the pumpkin pieces in a pot with a couple inches of water, covered it and let it cook the pumpkin until soft. I had to do this a couple of times because my pumpkin was big. They were selling per pumpkin rather than pound, so I made sure to pick out a large one to get my money’s worth!
And I ended up with 13 cups of pureed pumpkin, plus seeds all for $3.99!!!!
I froze most of the pumpkin in bags with 2 cups in each. I used one cup to make pumpkin muffins! And if you have a baby around the house you could use this puree as baby food!
