Candied Pumpkin Pieces
Ingredients

  • 2 cups of pumpkin pieces around 2 inch cubes ( I used some fancy cutters but cubes will do )
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups water

Directions

  1. In a small pot add your pumpkin, cinnamon, and cover with water
  2. On medium heat simmer pumpkin until tender
  3. Drain the pieces and rinse well
  4. In the same pot add the brown and granulated sugar with the 2 cups of water
  5. Bring sugar mixture to a simmer and add the pumpkin pieces
  6. Simmer for 15-20 minutes
  7. Take pot off of the heat and let the pumpkin sit in the sauce overnight
  8. The next day with a slotted spoon remove the pumpkin to a wire rack

Put the pieces aside and let dry for a few days ( or put them in a dehydrator at 140 degrees for a day or two )

Store in a cool dry place
