I've cooked 11 and I think I'm done, collectively, they were about 32-34 pounds, and I packaged up 20 1/2 15 oz bags......no preservatives, and they're in the freezer now..<br><br>
I'm still working on a bushel of apples for sauce right now too.<br><br>
and I picked 8 butternut squashes this am, and they weighed 16.5 pounds.

I've never had pumpkin pie in my life but I have a couple of tins of pumpkin in the cupboard so I might give it a go! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

That reminds me I still have most of the ingredients I bought for pumpkin pie last year. Just need some fresh almond milk. I should get cracking on that before I forget again.

Rabbit, with the pumpkin shortage 2 yrs ago, I started cooking my own pumpkin last yr, because for a whole year, you couldn't buy canned pumpkin. So this is the second year I've done it. It's cheaper and super easy! Plus, no preservatives. I just weigh out the cooked pumpkin in 15oz packages and freeze<br><br>
They're expecting another shortage this yr too, because of hurricaine Irene that went through the northeast here, although you wouldn't know by the number of pumpkins for sale around here. I don't know where most of the pumpkins come from that Libby's use or the companies who make other brands, but they may be affected.<br><br>
I still haven't had vegan pumpkin pie either.

Three big pots on my stove of pumpkins quartered and cooking and then apples in another pot....my ricer for the applesauce, my laptop, and my 6 butternut squashes that I had just picked/washed on the end.....I had no room for anything more, but I got it all done!<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

woudn't think so....you need to manipulate the dough as little as possible, so it stays flaky. too much mixing and it'll get tough.
