2 large eggs
3/4 cup of packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
1/4 teaspon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Theresa got this pumpkin from the farmers market. She chopped it up and put it in a pan with a rack. Put some water in the bottom to steam it. Baked at 350 for 1:15/ Cut off the skin and food processored it up good. We ended up with enough to make 5 more pies. Freezer is getting full.

Not the fake orange I am used to, but it tasted pretty good. Made some whipped cream by whipping it up with some powdered sugar and vanilla.
