Any way to make pumpkin pie from fresh pumpkins?
For this Thanksgiving, my mother wants to make pumpkin pie... with fresh pumpkins. I've found a lot of great pie recipes made with canned pumpkin, but most of the recipes for fresh pumpkin come from the web and we won't have time to test a recipe before Thanksgiving to see if it turns out nicely. Has anybody here made pumpkin pie out of fresh pumpkin or knows a way to substitute fresh roasted pumpkin for canned? Apparently the fresh pumpkin has more water and can turn your pie into a gooey mess if you don't compensate for the added moisture.
