We. Found. Canned. Pumpkin. In. Denmark! Woo!
For those who may be looking in Denmark, it was in the American/English section of SuperBest, right next to the boxed Mac ‘n Cheese and the ginger ale. We found these specifically at the SuperBest outside of Aarhus C on Viborvej up by the Bilka in Tilst.
Of course, it’s not cheap. If you can see the tag, they’re 35 DKK a can, or $6. (My family in the US tells me the same brand is selling for 4 for $5 at home.) So we bought a small fortune in canned pumpkin because we weren’t sure when we would see it again.
(Mmm, doesn’t that look delicious?)
Now the next problem is evaporated milk. A very friendly Danish woman – who was also purchasing some canned pumpkin – heard us talking about this dilemma and said we could buy some in powder form at a store called Specialkøbmanden, which sells specialty baking items. We have yet to go, but we aren’t really planning on baking any pies until Christmas, so we have some time. The powdered vs liquid form of the evaporated/condensed milk may present some challenges, so we shall see if there are some solutions to that online.
