Does anyone have any brands to seek out or any brands to avoid when using canned pumpkin puree to bake pie?

    Libby's. I heard on the board last year that the TJ brand was not good.

      Libby's is the only one.

        I agree with everyone else. Libby's is the best.

            I've been buying this organic brand. I think it's "Farmer's Market" or something like that. It's great. TJ's is watery and weird. This brand is bright orange in the can and has a nice body to it. Really, it's the color that sold me. My pies just look great.

              I've bought that brand at Whole Foods, and it's the only thing that equals Libby's in quality IMO. I was glad to find an organic brand that wasn't "off" somehow. Can't take a chance with the pumkin!
