Thread Name: BS: Pumpkin vs sweet potato pie
Subject: RE: BS: Pumpkin vs sweet potato pie
Fires weren't too close, Helen - thank goodness, and thank you! We have had storms the past couple of evenings and some local roads have been closed due to flash flooding, talk about going from one extreme to the other.

My maternal grandmother used to make gramma pie, and I remember eating it but not being ~quite~ sure if I actually liked it.

Our Canadian trips (No 2 son lives in Toronto, we have friends in other parts of Ontario and on Vancouver Island) have given me a taste for some foods, pumpkin spice muffins among them (and butter tarts, and Nanaimo bars......) so, being unable to buy canned pumpkin here, I just cut unpeeled pumpkin in chunks and roast it for 30-40 minutes or so. No added oil or seasoning. When it has cooled down it is peeled and pureed in a food processor, then frozen one cup at a time in self-seal bags. As most of the recipes seem to call for one cup of pureed pumpkin that works for me.

Yes, definitely I would use the orange sweet potato!
