When I was a child, I loved the pumpkin harvest season as that meant my grandmother would prepare them in brown sugar cane syrup. The pumpkin from my country have a hard shell, which, after eating the first candied piece, we used as a spoon to eat more. The pumpkin that we buy here in the United States has a softer skin, so usually the skin can also be eaten. Pumpkin with honey is one of my favorite desserts. It is very easy to prepare and today you will learn how to prepare it too.

- Put it on high heat and bring it to a boil.
- Lower the heat (from 1 to 9, set it to 2 or 3). Let it boil and if you like, cover it a little.
- I think sweet pumpkin tastes a lot better when it's cold because it absorbs more the flavor of the panela. So I usually put it in the refrigerator for at least 5 hours.
