  • 2 1/4 lb pumpkin flesh
  • 5 oz caster sugar
  • 5 oz chopped walnuts


  • Cut the pumpkin flesh into thin, rectangular pieces measuring about 3 x 1 1/4 in (8 x 3 cm).
  • Place these in a very wide, flameproof earthenware casserole dish, sprinkle with the sugar and add just sufficient water to cover; leave to stand for 24 hours.
  • Place the casserole dish on a moderate heat, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 45 minutes, stirring now and then, until the pumpkin is tender.
  • Leave to cool at room temperature and then serve in small bowls or dishes, sprinkled with the chopped walnuts.
