Homemade Pumpkin Pie

2 cups stewed pumpkin (slightly drier consistency than applesauce)
2 eggs
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups of whole milk or half-and-half
pinch salt
pinch pepper
2 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

9 inch pie pan filled with your favorite crust

Cut pumpkin into slices 2 inches thick and pare off the skin. Dice
the skinned pumpkin into 2 inch cubes, add to a skillet, and add
enough water to steam. For a 10 pound pumpkin in a 12 inch skillet,
we used 1 cup of water. Cover the skillet and steam on a medium
heat for several hours. Keep an eye on the amount of water remaining
and when it becomes soft mash it down. Remove the cover from
skillet and then when it reaches the texture of applesauce, let it
dry out another 10 minutes on a low heat. Measure out 2 cups and
put into a bowl. Add 2 T butter to warm pumpkin puree and let it

Preheat oven to 425 degrees (F).

In another bowl, beat the eggs well and beat in brown sugar, milk,
salt, pepper, maple syrup, spices and finally the pumpkin mixture.
Pour this into the pie shell and place in center oven rack at 425
degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue
to bake until the custard is firm. This should take a total of
forty minutes in all. Cool and serve.
