Meatless Monday – Candied Pumpkin

by naturalkidz on November 24, 2013

It’s almost Thanksgiving, the holiday which is surrounded by pumpkin.  This MeatlessMonday.com recipe is for candied pumpkin, which, to us, sounds AMAZING as a side dish this Thanksgiving.  Or tonight…. Thanks to Donna of Apron Strings for the recipe!

Candied-PumpkinF-225x175

Serves 8

  • 4 cups pumpkin, peeled & cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar

Place the pumpkin and water together in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the pumpkin flesh becomes tender when pierced with a fork. Drain, reserving 1 1/2 cups water and set the pumpkin aside.

Pour the reserved pumpkin cooking water back into the saucepan. Add the brown sugar and bring to a boil.

Add the pumpkin to the saucepan, turn heat down to medium low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 8-10 hours.

Divide into 8 servings and enjoy!
