Pumpkin Candy

1 quart fresh pumpkin, cubed

Put in pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook 15 to 20 minutes. Drain but save the liquid, approximately 1 1/2 cups. Mix liquid with 1 cup of brown sugar. Pour over pumpkin and boil for another 15 minutes.

Let pumpkin
pieces stand overnight in the syrup. Next day, boil pumpkin in the syrup for another 5 minutes. Then take pumpkin pieces from the syrup and set them on a waxed paper lined tray. Set in the sun to dry (be aware of bugs). After about 10 hours, roll in granulated or coarse sugar and just enjoy.
