    Is canned pumpkin puree available in Israel?

    how much fresh pumpkin would you use? I notice that the majority of the recipes are geared for the US market, now that you live in Israel maybe when a recipe is submitted you could give an Israeli equivalent

    Is there a substitute for the heavy cream- not sure if I can get cholov yisrael heavy cream locally.Is there a pareve substitute? Thank you.

    • You can always use whole milk or for a pareve substitute soy milk or coconut milk will work.

        Is there any particular reason to use sage? Can a different spice be substituted? Any ideas, anyone?
