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.

Why is it yellow? It's not my monitor distorting the color of the pie, since other pumpkin pie recipes show as a normal orange/dark orange color. This pie just looks really odd....
