, I had an SCS friend send me some canned pumpkin (and pumpkin spice, which we don't get as a mix here either) especially so I could make a recipe I'd expressed interest in. And it was yum. It just still puzzles, me, in retrospect, as to how we had it regularly as kids when it's still not available now. That's why I think relatives must have sent it over!! I've cooked with fresh pumpkin, though.
