Wow - what a difference!
Well, I've been wanting to compare making pie from a pie pumpkin instead of regular pumpkin. So I bought a pie pumpkin from Sprouts last week and cooked and pureed it last night. Made it in to pie today.
Wow - what a MUCH better texture and flavor than the pies I've made from my jackolantern pumpkins!!! I'm sold. Think I will only grow pie pumpkins from now on - since I don't carve pumpkins for halloween, I can still use them for decorating the porch IMO.
I saved the seeds from this little pumpkin, and have plenty now. Can't wait to try growing these next year! I didn't notice the variety name when I bought it, so I'll look for it this weekend when I stop at Sprouts.
