recipe, pumpkin, vegetables

Recipe from: 29 September 2015
Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 45 min


  • 10
    slices of pumpkin, skins on
  • 150
  • 125
    dark brown sugar
  • 25
    ground cinnamon (or to taste)
  • knob of ginger, peeled and grated
  • pinch of coarse salt
  • 2
    lemons, sliced
Servings: Change Serving


Preheat oven to 180°C.

Arrange the pumpkin slices in an oven tray lined with baking paper – scrubbing caramel off the tray is no fun! Dot with butter, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, ginger and salt and place the lemon slices in-between.

Place the tray in a preheated oven and bake the pumpkin slowly until the sugar has melted and the pumpkin starts to caramelise (about 45 minutes).

I sprinkle thyme over just before serving for extra flavour. And with a spoonful of sour cream and roasted pecan nuts, this pumpkin is practically a pudding!
