I tried this as written and my family thought it was "okay". This is definitely something dessert-ish, though. Nothing that I would serve WITH dinner. On a second thought, I tried it again, but with my own twist: First I 86'd the canned pumpkin and opted (since it is Halloween) for a fresh, medium, pie pumpkin. I sliced it in half, scooped out the seeds (of course reserving them for toasting later), put the 2 halves on a cookie sheet with just enough water to cover the bottom and baked them in the oven @ 350 for about 45 minutes (as if making squash...yanno, because it IS a squash). Then, once it was fully cooked and cooled, I quickly peeled it and threw it in a bowl for the next step. Second: I got rid of the evaporated milk. I could distinctly taste it in the first dish and well, it tasted like tin. Instead I used 1/2 heavy cream and 1/2 skim milk. I also used 1/2 c. sugar, omitted the salt, 1/2 the butter, and more cinnamon. DELISH! It was so light and airy and was like a mousse! It was devine! Still not savory, not too sweet but just right. If you've never had fresh pumpkin before, this is a great recipe to try it in. You'll never go back to the canned stuff!
