- 2 tbsp     "     ginger

- 1 tbsp     "     nutmeg

 

* In two different hotel pans, arrange pieces of pumpkins, skin facing down.

* Slowly pour water over the pumpkins but just enough to make them wet and to obtain a low water bath (it will slowly steam the pumpkins for a better and even result.) 

* Over the wet pumpkins, sprinkle some sugar ( it will generate extra moisture while cooking)

* Then sprinkle some spice blend (just enough to give a good flagrance.

* Cover, sealing well with aluminum foil and bake in convection oven at 350 F(or kitchen oven at 400 F) 

* Check every 10 minutes after the first half hour. They need to be tender and not falling to much apart, per se remaining intact.

Let cool and refrigerate over night before spinning in ice cream maker

_____Candied Citrus_____

Cut the oranges into small dices (almost the size of the brunoise) 

Blanch them 2 times in boiling water cooling them in iced water each time.

Between hands, squeeze the water out of the rinds, cover them with new water (make sure to measure the water).

Add the same amount of sugar and 1 clove per liter.

Bring the whole thing to a boil and let cool completely.

Bring the rinds and syrup to a boil again and let cool completely.

Repeat this operation 3 or 4 times until the rinds become soft and candied.

Add some Drambuie to the rind (enough to cover them)and let macerate for a few days.
