    I made pumpkin pie from leftover carved pumpkin once and it was yucky. The carving variety of pumpkins are not the best for cooking - there are different varieties for that.

    And tins.

    There are fresh pumpkins that make nice pies, but they are much smaller than jack o lantern pumpkins (and their flesh is different, more dense, less grainy, and a deeper color).

    Libby's is popular because it's smooth, and consistent (and not watery, like fresh pumkin can be).

    I use a variation of the recipe on the can, but add quite a bit more of the spices to it than the recipe calls for. We like our pie nearly savory and dark.

    Be careful to if you use a deep dish pie pan, you'll need 1 1/2 of the recipe for the filling or you'll have a sparse pie!

    If you know anyone with a parrot they'll eat them.

    Pumpkin seeds are a bit big for the normal garden seed eating birds. If you put them out you're most likely to get pigeons and starlings.

    You could toast them and eat them yourself.
