    Hi mozambique :) I have never tried it this way.. I dont use water.. instead, I leave the pumpkins slices in a pot with sugar sprinkled over them, overnight or appr.10-12 hours.. you cant believe it mozambique, next day you find the pumpkins floating in their own juice.. and in THAT juice I cook..

    And your pumpkins color is great as well :) it whets appetite ..gulp!

    hahahaha.. Jim I use the same measure.. glass!.. we the Turks use mostly glass for beverage.. and a transparent one .. I dont know how much mozambique means, but a standart glass I use takes 200cc.

    am I right mozambique?

    ... I really didnt bury him to the basement and jump over his recipe :))) I am innocent!

    If it works for you great, I'm not one to say you should change.
    But you say 200cc, Mo says 330ml.

    I worked at a place that had a recipe for sausage gravy that had precise measurements for every ingredient except the flour, which called for "one scoop".
    I always thought that odd.
    What size scoop?
    Heaping or flush?
    Of course the oldtimers would get the right amount every time, but back then I didn't know about the one to one ratio for roux.

    I missed the 330ml specification of mo.. if one uses such measurements, also should specify how much it means EXACTLY.. if you dont see that, 220cc in my recipe, or 330ml. in mo's, then forget it! it misleads.. sometimes a tiny little amount change even is changing the whole course and you fail.. so to be specific in kitchen is a must to me..

    By the way when mo gets online, he will find it weird :) this is sopposed to be his thread and we sat over it!!! :)

    A scoop= 1 splodge = a good measure of the ingredient :D
    Many skerricks, many many smidgens. Much more than a tink.

    Do it by taste .....that will do it!
