Turkish Pumkin Dessert Turkish Pumkin Dessert


  • 1 kg peeled pumpkin cut into large cubes,
  • 2 cups granulated sugar,
  • To garnish: chopped walnuts, hazelnuts or shredded coconut.


  1. Place the pumpkin cubes into a large saucepan and sprinkle the sugar,
  2. If you have time, let the pumpkins sit like this overnight,
  3. Or like I did, put the pan over low heat right away, since the heat also helps the pumpkin release all of its juices,
  4. Cook until the pumpkin is soft and absorbs all the water it initially released,
  5. Let it come to room temperature and then refrigerate,
  6. Garnish with chopped walnuts, hazelnuts or shredded coconut.

Bon appétit…
