    1 pie pumpkin (if you use a jack-o-lantern at 25% more sugar)
    1 cup sugar
    1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp ground cloves
    1 tsp ground allspice
    1/2 tsp ground ginger
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp salt
    4 large eggs
    1.5 cans (12oz ea) evaporated milk

        oven at 350 for 90 minutes or until soft.

     6. Mix 3 cups of the puree with the other ingredients and pour

     8. Bake in an oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
     9. Turn down the heat to 350 degrees and cook for 45-60 minutes
