DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the pumpkin into medium (2½" to 3" squares or triangles). Remove seeds and strings. With a sharp knife make diamond designs over the pulp.
  • Put the sugar in a pan with the cinnamon, orange juice, and water. Bring to a boil and stir until the piloncillo has dissolved.
  • Place the first layer of pieces of pumpkin upside down so they absorb as much juice as possible. The second layer should be with the pulp upwards. Cover and simmer.
  • When ready the top of the pumpkin pieces should look somewhat glazed, and the pulp soft and golden brown.
  • Let cool and serve with the syrup. You can also add cold evaporated milk.
  • Note time is a guess. Go by how the pumpkin looks.
