Kolokitha / Fried Pumpkin

This is another village secret that you just have to try.

I lived in the States most of my life, surrounded by pumpkins, but never knew what to do with them.


1 ripe pumpkin, wash it before cutting oil for frying

Using a sharp knife, quarter the pumpkin. Depending on the size, you may have to quarter it again. You want to get it into manageable wedges so you can slice it into thin strips - about 1/2 inch thick. Remove the hard peel after it's been sliced. it's easier! Sprinkle the pumpkin slices with salt. Heat oil in a skillet, and fry it in oil, until brown on each side. Patience though, it takes a while to brown. But it's well worth the wait. That's it - very easy and great as a side dish or alone with fresh bread!

Susie's Note: The browner it gets, the sweeter it gets. Actually, I prefer mine almost burnt.
