Sweet Pumpkin

3 lbs pumpkin (1500 gr)

2-3 cups sugar

½ cup walnuts or pecans

thickened cream (optional)

Cut the pumpkin in chunks larger than bite size (you can cut them in any size you like). Clean the seeds inside and peel the pumpkin chunks. Place them in a large pot and spread the sugar evenly on the surface.

Let them stand for 3-4 hours, for sugar to dissolve. After you see the sugar dissolved, place the pot on a low-medium heat and cook for 40-50 minutes until the pumpkins are darken in color. The water should be mostly drained.

When they are cooled; garnish them with thickened cream, walnuts, pecans or any kind of nuts.
