A crispy dessert made with pumpkin.


  • 1 kilo pumpkin, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 kilo sugar
  • 200 ml water
  • ½ lemon
  • To prepare pumpkin:
  • 500g slaked lime
  • 10 liter water


  1. Mix water and lime. Wait it 7 or 8 hours. Lime will sink and you will use the water on its surface. Pour this water on pumpkin slices and wait it about 7 hours.
  2. Then wash them well. Wait them in clean water about 1 hour.
  3. Put them in a large pot, pout sugar and 200ml water on them.
  4. Cook about 1 hour until it has right consistency and pumpkin slices get golden.
  5. Add a few lemon drops and cook a few minutes more.
  6. Let it cold. Don’t put it in refrigerator.
  7. Serve it as it is, it doesn’t need any topping, you just grab one slice and eat it.
