Pumpkin pie ingredients in Zurich?

Opps, was too late in ordering my Libby's canned pumpkin on my usual website, and now they have the pumpkin but not the evaporated milk. Has anyone seen this stuff recently at Jelmoli or somewhere like that? Hoping to avoiding making from scratch. Am American, after all!

LOL got to groan at that. Buy a pumpkin. Good farmers markets around. Lose that American canned theology.

Re: Pumpkin pie ingredients in Zurich?

I will admit I asked DH to look out for 1/2 price turkey next week after the Thanksgiving rush . Nothing like a pre-christmas turkey abuse moment.

Re: Pumpkin pie ingredients in Zurich?

Pumpkin: buy a chunk of pumpkin, microwave in a plastic bag 20 minutes or so, let cool.

Evaporated milk: use Kaffeerahm.

Re: Pumpkin pie ingredients in Zurich?

Just learned that evaporated milk is easily obtainable in local shops, so my tinned pumpkin is on its way. There will be Thanksgiving after all!

Given Nestle and the Anglo-Swiss Milk Company are/were Swiss it isn't all that surprising.

Same reason people buy fish fingers rather than a whole fish.

Re: Pumpkin pie ingredients in Zurich?

They sell Libby's at Globus in Zurich as well.


I tried the whole "from scratch" thing here last year - it just wasn't as good. It lacked flavour and was too watery.

You have to bake or nuke it, and let the excess water drain.

You also need to select the right kind of pumpkin.

I like fish fingers! They don't have the head on for a start... ick. And are lovely in a sandwich with Sarsons and mayo.

Correction.

They have the head finely ground and distributed through the whole of the fish finger.

Fish fingers are the salamis of the fish world. Useful way to dispose of leftovers and waste and still make money on it.

I baked it, then drained it via a kitchen towel.


I think I got the wrong pumpkin.

Re: Pumpkin pie ingredients in Zurich?

For the record, my first year abroad (a long time ago), my mother-in-law and I baked a pumpkin pie from scratch, and it was pretty good. However, it took us ages, and all manner of frying, baking, you name it, to get the moisture out. Libby's pumpkin is perfect, takes no effort and produces an amazing pumpkin pie every time. Better still, when I bring it to the office every year, my colleagues are in awe of me for having baked it. Little do they know!

Oh the poor maligned Captain Birdseye...not sure where you get yours from! Either way, I still like them. As long as the eyeballs aren't obvious all is well.

Do you work with a lot of unmarried IT people? Not judging your cooking skills, but there are various alternate explanations for this phenomenon.

Pretty obvious who in this forum has never had pumpkin pie made the way 95% of people in the US actually make it.

I'm not sure why you would think that.
