I am making some of my pumpkin pie, I always use real pumpkins, one of the sugar varieties I can get locally. Since we are at the end of the season, options are very limited. I cut one up that is good but the second one is very hard and much more yellow than I am used to. I question if it would be a good choice. I'd like to make at least 2-3 pies which I have to have for tomorrow but I am not sure if this one is a good choice. Usually the sugar / pie pumpkins I get are much more orange, and not quite as hard. My gut feeling it is just not completely ripened, but it is very late in the season so I find that hard to believe and it may just be a different variety I haven't used before. Any pumpkin experts have any input? I am usually very picky on the pumpkins I use in my pie but I'm out of options this late in the year for this batch.
