2. Wash and halve pumpkin, remove the seeds. Peel it and cut the flesh into small cubes. Place in a pot, cover with water and boil for about 20 minutes, or until tender. (Optionally, halve it, place cut sides down and bake in oven at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for about 1 1/2 hours, or until tender, then scrape the pumpkin flesh from the peel).

I made this pie for the first time for our weekend family gathering. I am not a huge fan of pumpkin, but this pie I liked a lot. It is simply delicious and I will definitely make it for the coming Thanksgiving.
