Candied Pumpkin - Calabaza en Tacha is one of those traditional candies on the Day of the Dead Celebration, “Dia de Muertos”. Every region in the country has its own special way to make it, but usually, the pumpkin is cooked in a Piloncillo syrup with cinnamon sticks for a richer flavor.
Piloncillo also was known as panela (brown solid sugar), is sold in Latin markets, or large grocery stores in the Latin Food Section. You can also find it online.
Other spices, like clove and anise, could be added.
Very interesting. Thanks.
