After I baked them until they were fork tender (removing the seeds and cleaning off the stringy stuff, cut in two), I used a spoon to remove the skin and used the food processor to puree it up.
From these two pumpkins, I got 14 cups of puree. I put 2 cups in each baggy and here is my price breakdown:
16 oz baggy versus 15 oz of organic canned pumpkin.
$5 got me both pumpkins!
With 14 cups I figure that out to be 112 ounces of puree. Divide $5/112 and I come up with .04 per ounce. Each baggy is worth .64! Compare that to store bought organic pumpkin puree (on sale right now) at $1.85 per can comes out to .12/ounce!
I'm no mathematician but I do believe I just tripled my money! WHOO HOO!
