I waited until April 2nd to post this because I didn’t want anyone to think that talking canned pumpkin was a joke. As an American living abroad, it is a serious topic of conversation, especially in November and December (pumpkin pie season). Here, I’ll detail what I know about sources for pumpkin puree in Ireland. And if you want more than just pumpkin puree, check out a whole blog post I wrote two years ago about where to buy American food in the Emerald Isle.
Libby’s Pumpkin Puree, £2.25 from Partridges, 425-gram can for £2.75 from American Food Direct, 425-gram can for £2.75 from American Soda, or 740-gram can for £4.99 from South African Foods (enough for two pies)
Danival Organic Pumpkin Puree, 500-gram jar, €4.24 from Cork’s Quay Co-op or £4.00 from GoodnessDirect.co.uk
Sometimes Aldi will have an American food week and sell them!
Aunt Nellie’s Sweet Shop has been known to carry Marshmallow Fluff, so Libby’s canned pumpkin puree is not out of the question, though I’ve not seen it yet.
Of course, if you cannot find it or if you want to make your pumpkin puree from scratch, here is my Grandma’s recipe for homemade pumpkin pie.
