Title: Poached pumpkin in syrup
Yield: 4 Servings
1 (2 to 3 pound) pumpkin or
1 c Sugar
1 c Water
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 c Tahini
1/2 c Ground walnuts
Seed and peel the pumpkin, then cut into rectangular chunks about
2-inches by 3-inches. Place the pumpkin pieces in a wide heavy pan,
sprinkle with the sugar, and cover with the water and lemon juice.
Cover the pan and cook over low heat for 1 hour, until pumpkin flesh
is tender, occasionally basting with the juices.
Remove pan from the heat and let pumpkin cool in the liquid. Remove
pumpkin pieces and arrange on a serving dish. Spoon the syrup from
the pan over the pumpkin, drizzle with the tahini and sprinkle with
the ground walnuts.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
