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

1/2 cup ground walnuts

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
