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 :P

Rach, it was Anne who tried it and liked it :D

None of the Waitrose stores around me carry pumpkin... >:(
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.
