We start out in a large greenhouse, there are two gentlemen discussing pumpkin pies. There is an obvious expert and he states that there are pumpkins especially made for pies, but pumpkins tend to have a lot of water and he has gotten a lot of complaints that peoples pies are to runny. He has an answer with certain squashes that your family will still think it's pumpkin. Sweet meat squash still has the orange color on the inside but it has a much lower water content, cut it in half right around where the equator would be. Remove the seeds and strings, and put it upside down on a pan and place it into a oven at 375 degrees for an hour and a half, afterwards the skin should just peel off. Chop it up and put it through a food mill.
