Ingredients
  • 1 (2 to 3 pound) pumpkin or banana squash
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup tahini

Seed and peel the pumpkin, then cut into rectangular chunks about 2-inches by 3-inches. Place the pumpkin pieces in a wide heavy pan, sprinkle with the sugar, and cover with the water and lemon juice. Cover the pan and cook over low heat for 1 hour, until pumpkin flesh is tender, occasionally basting with the juices.

Remove pan from the heat and let pumpkin cool in the liquid. Remove pumpkin pieces and arrange on a serving dish. Spoon the syrup from the pan over the pumpkin, drizzle with the tahini and sprinkle with the ground walnuts.
