      I haven’t tried using fresh pumpkin in any recipes. It’s a lot more work to scoop out, remove seeds, roast pumpkin, and then puree before using in recipes like this. After all that, it should be similar to the canned pumpkin, but again, I haven’t tried it myself. Hope this is helpful!

      much love,

    I love all these pumpkin recipes! I definitely need to get into pumpkin more… but eating pumpkin isn’t really a big thing in the UK (we only use them to make lanterns out of for Halloween!).
