Poached pumpkin in syrup

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 (2 to 3 pound) pumpkin or
Banana squash
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Water
Juice of 1/2 lemon
½ cup Tahini
½ cup 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
