Pumpkin Candy

1 quart fresh pumpkin meat cut into 1-by-1-1/2-inch pieces

2-1/2 cups water
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated maple or raw sugar

Place the cubed pumpkin in a saucepan and cover it with water, about 2 to 2-1/2 cups.

Bring it to a boil and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, uncovered, until the pumpkin is just tender.

Remove the pumpkin with a slotted spoon. There should be about 1-1/2 cups of liquid remaining.

Add the brown or maple sugar and dissolve over low heat. Place the pumpkin pieces back in the pan and bring slowly back to a boil, then lower the heat
Simmer for 15 minutes. Let the pumpkin pieces stand in the syrup overnight.

The next day, bring the mixture back to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

Remove the pumpkin pieces from the syrup and
Spread them out on a wire rack so the pieces are not touching one another. Let them stand in a warm place or in a 140-degree oven for 3 to 4 hours to dry.
Roll each piece in the maple or raw sugar, and store them in a dry, cool place.

Do not stack or crowd the candy together.
