The can is there, there's a pumpkin on the label... open it and mix it up with spices to make a pie, right? A pumpkin pie made from a fresh pumpkin tastes so much better than the glop that was processed several months back! And it is much easier than you think. Fresh pumpkin puree makes a light, fluffy pumpkin pie with a fresh, traditional pumpkin pie taste.
