      After cooking and draining, here is the typical conversion:

      2 1/2- lb.pie pumpkin =1-3/4 cups puree
      3 1/2-lb.pie pumpkin=2-1/2 cups puree
      6-lb. carving pumpkin=2-3/4 cups puree
      5-lb. round pumpkin=3-1/3 cups puree

      I’ve always used fresh pumpkin for the can stuff in the same amounts without an issue, I didn’t realize there is a difference when you sub fresh for can. Thanks for the heads up. Who knew?
