Here is what you need:
4 lbs of fresh pumpkin (cut into chunks)
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
1 whole clove
2 lbs Piloncillo ( you can use brown sugar or
a pat of butter
Place a few inches of water in your pot add juice of 1 orange, cinnamon stick, 1 star anise, 1 whole clove, 2 lbs Piloncillo (or brown or raw sugar) and a pat of butter (optional) Stir and add in your pumpkin pieces. Simmer covered until tender.
These things are YUMMY warm. If you don't have a dairy restriction spoon over a bit of sweetened condensed milk and hello delicious just became decadent! For some crunch and a little bit of salty spice I recommend you top it with fresh roasted pumpkin seeds! Even better news this treat gets yummier in the fridge. Including pumpkin cleaning and slicing I would say the process took about 20 minutes! Enjoy!!
