I found this on another board :)
Makes about 4 cups of pumpkin Puree..
1 medium sugar pumpkin
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups evaporated milk
4 eggs, beaten
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts


1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2 Cut out top of pumpkin and clean out all seeds and strings from inside. Slice pumpkin vertically into 3 inch wide strips. Place strips onto a baking sheet.
3 Bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour. Once done, scrape the pumpkin from the skins, then beat with a mixer or puree in a food processor until smooth.
4 Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
5 Mix the nutmeg, ginger, salt, evaporated milk and eggs with the pumpkin puree. Pour mixture into two 9 inch pie crusts.
6 Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for an additional 35 to 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool and refrigerate.

I need some help .My wife and I would like some help with some recipes about what to do with pumpkins, pies, breads,babby food, or anything that would be good to make out of pumpkins.

I just used the recipe from the can and
substituted a cooked (stovetop) halloween
pumpkin. You can get the libby's recipe
anywhwere on the net. You have to drain the
pumpkin or it will be runny. The only thing is,
my pie came out kind of lumpy. You may want
to blend it, or somehow "food process" it.
good luck

Stephanie, the insides that you are going to clean out for a jack o lantern are the pulp and the seeds. That is not what you make pie filling out of. You would need to cut up the pumpkin shell and peel or pare the skin, then you cook the meat of the pumpkin. You can do either or, but I would not attempt to eat it, after making a halloween pumpkin out of it. Get yerself nudder one fer eatin.

After your pumpkig has been sitting on the porch as a Jack-O-Lantern for a couple of weeks I don't think you want to make pumpkin pie out of it.

Get a fresh one like Bill's. Empty it, seeds can be seasoned with seasoning salt and oven dried. Then you have to skin the pumpkin, slice it so you can cook it down. Then you can it for pie making.

Lots of work. You may want to consider store bought unless you plan on doing several. I did about six batches with the neighborhood girls last year. This year they want to do Mincedmeat.

I can provide more detailed cooking instructions if you really want to do it. But you will need fresh Pumpkin, not left over already been carved sitting on the front step pumpkin.

Just skip the pumpkin pie!
Make homemade sweet potato pie from scratch,
much tastier and easier!
