DIRECTIONS

  • Oven: 325 deg F/160 deg C.
  • The pumpkin need only be washed, should not be too old. Do not peel it. Slice like melon, and remove seeds.
  • Arrange the slices either along the length of an oven dish, overlapping slightly, or in a round dish, again overlapping slightly.
  • Smear the butter over the slices more or less as much as 2 good teaspoons per slice, and please do use real butter.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar over the buttered slices, and be generous.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over the whole lot, and then sprinkle lightly with salt.
  • Bake until the pumpkin peel is soft and the dish looks done, with the sugar melted -- about 45 minutes. But please use your own judgement.
  • We often made this in the oven of a black coal-and-wood fired stove on a farm, and simply checked to see when it was done.
  • The pumpkin will be tender, of course, and the peel will taste like toffee and will be only slightly chewier, soft and edible. This is delicious if the pumpkin and flavours come together!
