Pioneer Woman illustrated how to make your own pumpkin puree, and I couldn't NOT do it since we received a couple pumpkins from the CSA farm.
Strangely, while the pumpkins roasted, they smelled like hay. It must have been the stringies that I couldn't completely remove.
My yield from three pumpkins was 10 cups of puree, which I froze in quart-sized bags, 2 cups in each. I don't know the cost to me of the pumpkins, but 5-6 cans of pumpkin puree would be at least $10.
Coming soon: roasted pumpkin seeds
