I have never made a pumpkin pie from a can. I have always cooked the pumpkin and frozen it. The recipe I use has been in my mom's family for several generations. My gramma, who is 92, says she can remember making the pies with her
gramma! I made two pies on Sunday. I am going to attempt to make a pie crust.
I also use a family recipe for pumpkin bread, again, from gramma. I made four Monday morning.
I always have used pie pumpkins. It seems they have a better taste.
