      Sorry but this was NOTHING like the authentic Mexican candy..plus, the cloves were way too overpowering! You need to boil the pumpkin in limestone (cal) and rinse it out before baking it in sugar.

      I 'loved it', but I must have done something wrong. I didn't get the Dulce de Calabaza from the little Mexican grocery store of my youth. I turned a medium sized pumpkin into a handful of pumpkin raisins. They were delicious pumpkin raisins, but not quite what I was going for. I think that I didn't candy them long enough. Some recipes seem to call for a presoak in quicklime (to keep the pumpkin firm?). I will try again.
