  Fritschner writes: "In the pumpkin and apricot dish..., the natural
  sweetness of pumpkin, dried apricots and onion all play off each
  other to make a subtle side dish. The original recipe came from Sonia
  Uvezian's _Cooking from the Caucasus_, which has several recipes
  using pumpkin as a savory side dish or addition to a main dish. It
  isn't quick to prepare, but it's delicious."
