    Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin A which you need for good vision and healthy skin.

    Ingredients

    1 1/4 pounds pumpkin, unpeeled (You can also use 2 cups canned 100% pure pumpkin.)
    4 tablespoons water
    1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    pinch of grated nutmeg
    pinch of ground cloves
    2/3 cup light cream
    2 eggs

    1. Peel pumpkin and spoon out fibers and seeds. Cut into even-size pieces.

    3. Place pumpkin pieces and 4 tablespoons water into a saucepan over medium heat. Cover and cook until tender (about 10 minutes).
