I know that you try to make sure your recipes are easy to follow, but I don't know if your pumpkin in fresh, cut, cooked, canned or whatever. In Israel, we have these super-giant pumpkins, and we buy pieces, fresh, of course.

Sorry for missing that, Muse.
You can use fresh or canned pumpkin for this. Fresh pumpkin naturally gives this a better flavor.
