Special Thanks to our member, ΒΑΣΙΛΙΚΗ ΗΛΙΟΠΟΥΛΟΥ for the delicious pumpkin spoon sweet.
- Peel the pumpkin, remove the seeds and cut into 2x1 cm pieces or wedges.
- Boil the pieces in water along with 1 teaspoon citric acid, for 5 minutes.
- Drain and repeat the second step again. This is done to make the pieces of pumpkin “crispier”.
- Drain and rinse. Set aside and allow to cool and strain in a strainer. Squeeze pieces with your hands to make sure all of the water is released.
- Pour the 2 ¼ cups of water in a pot. Add the sugar and boil for 5 minutes.
- Add the glucose and the pumpkin. Boil until the syrup thickens.
- Add the remaining ¼ teaspoon citric acid and vanilla.
You can use this method to make a sweet with watermelon rind, using only the white part of the rind.
