Seared Pumpkin

This is a really nice recipe for this time of year. Pumpkins are in season so you will find pumpkins at their best right now. This recipe is a very old fashioned recipe that dates back to the early settlers here in America and has been in my family for years.

2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup water
1 pound pumpkin, cubed
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1. Melt butter in large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add pumpkin and water, cook 5 minutes. Add brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

2. Cook until water has evaporated and pumpkin is golden. Stir in maple syrup and walnuts cooking for 1 more minute.

Yields: 6 servings

Do not forget to season your cast iron skillet every now again, you can find the directions that I listed here for you.
