This is really good. I prefer not to use canned pumpkin from the grocery store. Cushaw squash or butternut squash can be substituted. My favorite pumpkins are called Buckskin or Long Island Cheese. They don't have the bright orange color you see at roadside stands. They are more of a dull tan color.
