Have you ever been to Santorini?

Friday, July 23, 2010


for 1 large jar

  • 1kg pumpkin (white species preferably)
  • ½ kg sugar
  • ½ kg honey
  • 1 cup blanched almonds cut in half longitudinally
  • ½ cup water
  • The juice from a small lemon

  1. Cut the pumpkin to slices as you would potatoes for French fries, then rinse, transfer to a strainer and let them drain well.
  2. Bring the water, sugar and honey to the boil in a pot. Add the pumpkin slices and cook over high heat to make the syrup. Skim as necessary.
  3. When the syrup is ready, add the almonds and the lemon juice. Remove from heat and let the syrup stand to cool down, then transfer the dessert in large jars.

Nice recipe. Do you have a recipe for Galaktaburiko? (Spelling may be off.)
