Honestly, don't bother roasting your own pumpkins. The canned stuff, Libby's specifically, is the way to go, even for the professionals.
I wouldn't have bothered, or even made the pie, except Tristan's school had a pumpkin decorating contest so there were these pie pumpkins laying around, staring at me.

I'm turning the remaining puree into pasta sauce tonight.

Falernum? That's something I've not seen for awhile. Reckon it should work well with apples.

Disappointing Pumpkin.

Even though they were fresh pie pumpkins, bland af. All the flavour came from the spices (mace, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, clove, black pepper). First time making a pumpkin pie and possibly not going to again. Not unless I can source pumpkins that have some flavour.

I won’t open a can anymore and will definitely go through the bother of roasting my own pumpkin. Someday you can taste test my pie up against a can of goo and tell me whether it’s worth it. :)

I like Cinderella, cheese or peanut pumpkins, all of them are heirlooms.

Somehow there was a slice of pumpkin pie left, so I ate it.

Not crazy about pie (unless it's chocolate) but the pecan pie latte I just had was pretty tasty. :mrgreen:

Oh, I didn't know cheese was heirloom. I've used it in soups and it's amazing. Will need to try Cinderella and peanut next fall.

What about savory pies? I've made a wild boar and apple pie with cheese-dough crust that has been amazing.

I am still trying to perfect my apple galette. It’s not the flavours, I have what I want there. It’s the textures. The galette is flat and thin, with an edge crust. That has a butter/wine/vanilla bean/sugar crust. And then I have a syrup over it. I managed to contain it this last time, and it was good, it gave it a sort of sticky bun sort of goo. And that’s almost what I want, but, really I want it to be a more caramel sort of drizzle. And I really think I may have to bake the pie, make the syrup, then drizzle it over the pie when it comes out of the oven.

So when am I coming over to eat this deliciousness? That sounds amazing.
