Pumpkin Pie – Not Canned

A woman I used to work with suggested “Sweet Pumpkins” to grow for canning or using for pie. We didn’t grow these sweet pumpkins this year but sure do plan on it next year. I got these for .19/lb recently and decided to give this recipe a try: http://www.pickyourown.org/pumpkinpie.php
It turned out beautiful and delicious. By the way, did you know that canned pumpkin is a combination of squash? I believe it doesn’t even have pumpkin in it!

The sweet pumpkins steamed and ready for processing.

Here’s all of the ingredients mixed together.

The finished product. Of course we finished it off with homemade whipped cream.
