1 kilo pumpkin, peel and seeds removed
800 g granulated sugar
560 g water
2 tablespoon(s) glucose
12 g citric acid powder
1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla powder


1.Peel the pumpkin, remove the seeds and cut into 2x1 cm pieces or wedges.
2.Boil the pieces in water along with 1 teaspoon citric acid, for 5 minutes.
3.Drain and repeat the second step again. This is done to make the pieces of pumpkin “crispier”.
4.Drain and rinse. Set aside and allow to cool and strain in a strainer. Squeeze pieces with your hands to make sure all of the water is released.
5.Pour the 2 ¼ cups of water in a pot. Add the sugar and boil for 5 minutes.
6.Add the glucose and the pumpkin. Boil until the syrup thickens.
7.Add the remaining ¼ teaspoon citric acid and vanilla.
