Baked the pumpkin this year, so I needed some entertaining things to do with all of it and this was one of them. It turned out terrible, a big mess of (tasty) pumpkin goo, so I took the advice of another reviewer. I patiently poured it all back into the pan and this time heated to 239 instead of 232. I read elsewhere that soft ball stage is 235-240, so I think that by going to exactly 232 I missed it (even though I thought I saw a soft ball in water). On the reheat I was also careful to brush the sides of the pan with water. I had a thick bottomed tri-ply stainless pan, so I didn't have any burning problems at all *phew!* Yum! Keeping this one in the recipe box for sure. Simple, but time consuming. Oh, and I didn't have any light corn syrup so I left it out entirely, figuring the sugar would do the trick.
