Choose the good pumpkin which a durability weight does heavily above all.
- 2/3 pound (300g) pumpkin
- 1 sheet (2/3 pound) ita konjak
- 2 inch by 2 inch kombu
- sugar, salt, soy sauce
- Cut into a little over 1 inch pieces and round off the corners (Pumpkin is easy to break into pieces while cooking).
- Make twisted konjak. Boil twisted konjak with a pinch of salt for 2-3 minutes and drain.
- Put Kombu into back of the pot and put pumpkin onto Kombu. Pour 1 cup water and heat. When water comes to boil, put into konjak and simmer for more 5 minutes. When pumpkin cooked through, add 1 teaspoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon sugar. Simmer pumpkin over low heat until the flavor has been fully absorbed for 10 minutes.
