      Just made this with a "country style" flare - chopped fresh pumpkin - a fine dice really - sauteed with onion + garlic - added some red pepper, a smidge of fresh ginger, a 1/2 cup of golden raisins and a bit of dried cranberry (omitted flour and water.) Oh and about a half cup of pumpkin seed - I then wrapped it as filo dough triangles for an appetizer. (Baked according to filo recipes . . . WONDERFUL ! Oh what can happen when you have a sugar pumpkin left from halloween! Thanks for the inspiration!
