I always use fresh pumpkin to make pie, and this pie was just so-so. My family wasn't real excited about it, and asked that I use my standard recipe instead from now on. I did double the spices though, I couldn't imagine how bland it would have been without doing that. I didn't care for the sweetened condensed milk either. I'm glad that more people are using their pumpkins though, instead of throwing them out. Fresh pumpkin is always better than canned, and its better for you as well. Remember though, that without the preservatives, the pumpkin will get moldy faster, so make sure you use it or freeze it after you bake the pumpkin. I freeze mine in 2 cup increments.
