Indeed. Most canned pumpkin products are actually butternut squash and a tiny bit of actual pumpkin. The best pumpkin I've ever eaten was called the Cinderella Blue, purchased at a local farm. It was a white pumpkin on the outside (with a small hint of blue tinge) and the inside was flame red. Incredibly delicious for everything, some of the best pies and bread I've ever eaten.
