Candied Pumpkin

This dessert is so simple, it seems too easy. Pumpkin cubes are cooked in brown sugar water and dried to make an irresistible candy for an innovative new take on pumpkin sweets. This recipe comes to us from blogger Donna of Apron Strings.

Serves 8

  • 4 cups pumpkin, peeled & cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar

Place the pumpkin and water together in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the pumpkin flesh becomes tender when pierced with a fork. Drain, reserving 1 1/2 cups water and set the pumpkin aside.

Pour the reserved pumpkin cooking water back into the saucepan. Add the brown sugar and bring to a boil.

Add the pumpkin to the saucepan, turn heat down to medium low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 8-10 hours.

Divide into 8 servings and enjoy!
