Halloween is just around the corner and I thought I would like to show you how we eat pumpkin in Japan. I wonder if the big ones (ones used for Jack-o'-Lantern in western countries) are edible or not. I'm a bit curious about how you eat pumpkins for meal. Must be a lot different from ours.And this is how my late mother used to cook for us. I remember that the pumpkin was the only veggies she didn't allow me to cut when young (I was slicing cabbage when I was 7 or 8 years old, haha). There were no such thing called microwave-oven to soften them at that time.
Cutting them like these, put some dried sea weed. And then cook them with powdered-soup stock, sugar, cooking sake, soy source.
Does this look yummy to you, p;)
