I remember this show fondly, so I was happy to find the recipe. We ended up with 6 extra pumpkins from a carving contest and it seemed a good time to experiment. Mine also did not set up-however the resulting soup was absolutely yummy. I'll do some research on custard ingredients to try and adjust. It will be worth the effort.Lovely presentation with the cooked pumpkin.
