Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie

This video shows you how to make pumpkin pie from scratch using fresh pumpkins instead of canned. For the filling, you’ll simply boil cubes of pumpkin, and then mash the soft pumpkin with evaporated milk, eggs, and spices. You’ll also see how to make the shortening-based crust. It's surprisingly easy! Watch the video, then get Randy’s 5-star recipe for Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie. It’s a classic Thanksgiving pie.

Roasting the pumpkin is better than boiling it. Cut the top off as if you are making a jackolantern. Then let it cool and break apart the pumpkin. Scoop out seeds with a spoon and peel off skin. The size of the pumpkin determines the amount of time needed in the oven; the larger the pumpkin, the more oven time needed. After scooping and scraping, purée' the pumpkin in a food processor and strain the liquid thru cheesecloth. Use as desired. Roasting takes a little more work, but roasting it gives it a richer flavor.

I was hoping that this would actually show how to prepare the pumpkin and clean it and cube it and cook it

I make a very similar recipe, it is my grandmothers recipe and is the favourite pie in the house... it is pale yellow because it is fresh pumpkin and she is right fresh pumpkin makes all the difference, can pumpkin I assume has added colour and more spice.
