Mix pumpkin with eggs, sugar, salt and spices. Stir in cream and orange rind and pour mixture into custard cups. Set cups in a shallow pan of hot water high enough to come almost to the top of the cups. Bake in a pre-heated slow oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until custard is firm.
If you have kids, the waiting time and the smell from the oven will make them crazy.
