Ingredients:  
2 Sticks Margarine or Butter
4 Cinnamon Sticks or 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 1/2 Cups Maple Syrup
2/3 Cups Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Orange Juice*
1 Tbsp Orange Zest*
1 Cup Water
2 Tbsp Grated Fresh Ginger

Directions:
Directions:
Cut the stem off the pumpkin. Cut the pumpkin in half and scrape out the seeds and stringy parts. Cut each piece in half lengthwise again, then again into about 1" wide strips. Cut the skin off each piece (I used a potato peeler to peel skin off) and then cut the flesh into approximately 1/2" pieces. Use about 6 - 9 cups pumpkin for this recipe. If want a larger dish, increase ingredients for sauce.

Place margarine (butter) into a large skillet (or saucepan). Place pumpkin cubes into the skillet, cover and bring to boil. Cook about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Carefully add water, orange juice (can use 2 tbsp concentrated) cinnamon sticks or ground cinnamon, grated ginger, brown sugar and maple syrup. Leave lid off and continue to cook pumpkin until pumpkin is clear looking and barely fork tender. If juice has not reduced to a thick glaze, remove pumpkin and continue to boil juice down and has a syrup consistency. Add back pumpkin cubes, stir to coat pumpkin well. Place into a serving bowl. Let cool to room temperature before serving. Stir pumpkin every once in a while to coat pumpkin cubes with sauce.

Let set at least 2 hours before serving. Can be served room temperature or cold.

Personal Notes:
This is very good. Similar to candied sweet potatoes but the pumpkin has the consistency of cooked apples.

Melissa made for her Spanish class and her teacher loved it.
