Every year we would head out for apple picking. Of course it was also pumpkin picking time. I always bought several small sugar ones. Baked them and made at least two pies. One for my house and one for my daughter's. The rest of the pumpkin went into the freezer for later use.
A big difference is taste from fresh and canned pumpkin. Fresh is always better. Even from the freezer.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"
