Thank you so much!!!  We found the cans right up front!  Mindy took like a million of them, so blame her, if they run out Tongue

Rach, it was Anne who tried it and liked it Cheesy

None of the Waitrose stores around me carry pumpkin... Angry
Looks like I'll be making another sweet potato pie this year.

P.S. I ended up buying a little cooking pumpkin, cutting it into squares, boiling it to bits and then mashing it with a potato masher. The equivalent of canned pumpkin it is not.

I'm guessing it was too watery?  I steam mine rather than boil but I've also heard positive things about roasting.

Pioneer Woman roasts hers and has great instructions. I had great success using her method last year.

Other places do it online. It's more expensive, I think @ £2.30, but if you have your heart set on pumpkin...?

My mum always preferred sweet potato pie anyway.
