Made Pumpkin Pie from Scratch for the First Time

So last week, I made pumpkin pie from scratch for the first time. We had a small-medium sized pumpkin that we had that was supposed to be carved for Halloween, but didn't get a chance to do anything with it. Instead of it going to waste, I decided to make pumpkin pie for the family. It was a lot of work so it might be my last time I'll ever make one.

It took me two days: first night cut it up and cooked it and second night was the actual prepping and baking. I only used half the pumpkin to make the pumpkin pie. Here's the ingredients I used:

- 2-1/2 cups fresh pumpkin puree
- 1 can of evaporated milk
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup regular white sugar
- 2 tsp chopped ginger
- 3 eggs

Pie Crust:
- ready-made pie crust

Putting the cut-up pumpkin into the blender to make puree

Mixing all the ingredients together and pouring over the pie crust in the pie dish

Cooling down and put into fridge. Served chilled.
