Homemade Pumpkin Pies
I have never baked a pumpkin pie from home grown (or store bought) pie pumpkins. I used my own home grown ones for these pies, and put more puree in my freezer. There were so delicious. Of course our farm fresh eggs went into this pie. I used a recipe from Allrecipes, that required a can of sweetened condensed milk, but now I am searching for a recipe that uses yogurt instead.
Once I learn to make yogurt from raw milk, I can make these pies even more homemade, avoiding high fructose corn syrup and other unwanted elements.
I found this recipe to try when we do make our own yogurt:
Alton Brown's Yogurt Pumpkin Pie
You can't get more "pioneer" than that.
(The recipe we used is Perfect Pumpkin Pie)
