Grandma Florence's Pumpkin Pie
3/4 Cup White Sugar
1 3/4 Cup Pumpkin
1 Can of Evaporated Milk
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Ginger
Put eggs in a bowl and beat. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour in a 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Test by inserting a silver knife 1/2 inch from the edge of the pie. When it comes out clean, the pie is done. Serve the pie warm or at room temperature and top with whipping cream. The addition of ginger seems to bring the other flavors and spices together in a whole new way.
