Fried Pumpkin

I had a couple of people ask for the recipe on my fried pumpkin and I finally got the last pumpkin done yesterday yay! I canned a total of 12 quarts for pie and froze 14 quarts also for pie's and froze 24 quarts for fried pumpkin.

After letting it boil gently on the
stove top for a half hour its
soft and ready to mash

I cut, seeded, peeled then cut the pumpkin
into small cubes

This is my favorite it makes tiny to
medium size chunks :)
It only takes a minute to mash, I have
also pureed it the end result is
good either way.

In the above skillet I added about a  pint of mashed pumpkin, then to the above skillet I added:
3 Tbl sugar
2 Tbl brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbl butter
I let it cook over low to medium heat for about half an hour make sure to stir often, sorry I forgot to take a picture of the end result, the pumpkin will cook down and turn a little darker in color when done. It tastes sooo good on a hot buttered biscuit! I have also when I did not have fresh pumpkin available purchased canned pumpkin and this worked fine also. Fried pumpkin is very forgiving if you like it a little sweeter add more brown sugar, if you like more Cinnamon add it. :)


  1. Cool! I'm going to try this tomorrow!

  2. Kind of reminds me of squash but it is fried, thanks. Not at all how I envisioned it being made.
