With winter squash season in full swing, I am always on the lookout for new recipes using pumpkin.  I first tasted this recipe over the summer when I was traveling in Istanbul.  In Turkish it is called “Kabak Tatlisi” but we would recognize it as candied pumpkin!  With only 3 simple ingredients, this dish is definitely one to add to your holiday lineup.

I first tried this Turkish Candied Pumpkin at a stunning restaurant called Nar.  They offered one of the most impressive dessert buffets I had ever seen!  You can see their version of Kabak Tatlisi there in the lower left corner of the photo.

To make this treat, all you have to do is cut up chunks of fresh pumpkin and sprinkle it with sugar.  The sugar will draw out the water in the pumpkin and create a sweet syrup.  The next day simply bake the pumpkin pieces in the oven, making sure to turn and coat the pieces through the cooking time.

When you are ready to serve, sprinkle with toasted walnuts.   It can also be enjoyed with a dollop of clotted cream or with a scoop of ice cream.  This is super easy dessert to make in advance and serve throughout the holidays!
