Grated Pumpkin Pie

(by Tricia Sullivan)

This pie is a lot of work (almost entirely because of grating the pumpkin), but it’s the absolute best pumpkin pie you’ll ever have in your life.

For filling:

4 c. grated raw pumpkin

1 scant c. sugar

1/2 t. salt

1 heaping t. ground ginger

1/2 t. allspice

1/2 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. cloves

3/4 c. evaporated milk

2 or 3 eggs

1 unbaked pie shell

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix all filling ingredients together, and pour into an unbaked pie shell.

Bake for 1 hour or until knife inserted in the center comes away clean.
