Baked Pumpkin Slices
55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
5 ingredients
4 servings
My late mother-in-law made pumpkin this way, and it's the only way (apart from pumpkin pie) I like pumpkin! It's awfully hard to give quantities: please use your own judgement too. I do not know what kinds of pumpkin you have: our most-used one is called Boer pumpkin and has orange flesh and white skin.
