Mix the remainder of 1/2 cup sugar, eggs, salt, vanilla, spices, cooked pumpkin, and milk into a mixing bowl. Pour into the baking pan. Place pan into another shallow pan with 1/2 inch of hot water in the bottom. Bake at 350° for 1 1/2 hours. Cool and refrigerate until ready to serve. To serve, invert onto a serving plate. This is a special fall treat, especially when made with home grown pumpkins from your special pumpkin patch.
