Peel pumpkin, remove center ana cut into the desired pieces; soak overnight in limewater to cover, using one tablespoon quick lime for each quart of cold water and stir well before pouring over pumpkin. The following morning, remove pumpkin from lime and wash thoroughly three or more times in clear water. Cover pumpkin with warm water and slowly bring to a boiling point. Boil for 5 minutes, no longer. Then wash twice in dear water (cold), and allow to drain for about an hour. Pierce each piece in several places with a fork (so sugar syrup can penetrate.) Weigh the pumpkin and use an equal weight of sugar. Place the pumpkin in a baking dish or pan that has never had any fat used in it; cover with sugar and moisten with water; cook over a very slow fire until pumpkin is crystalized, which will take several hours. Carefully move the pieces around so that all will cook evenly. When the pieces are tender and crystallized, drain from syrup and allow to dry on wax paper. CHOCOLATE LOGS TYPE NO. I >tr*.J.J.
