Cooking pumpkins in a slow cooker:

Step 1: prepare the ingredients.


So, let's start cooking tasty and healthy dishes, in fact, everything is so simple that even a novice cook will cope with the task. Using a sharp kitchen knife, we clean a piece of fresh pumpkin with an approximate weight of 600 grams of seeds and fibers. After that, we wash the vegetable under trickles of cold running water, dry it with paper kitchen towels, send it to a cutting board and, without removing the peel, cut lengthwise into slices up to 2-2.5 centimeters thick. Next, lay out on the countertop the remaining products that will be needed for the dish, and proceed to the next, in fact, almost final step.

Step 2: prepare the pumpkin in a slow cooker.


We insert the plug of the multicooker into the socket, put the teflon bowl in the recess of the kitchen appliance and put the slices of pumpkin there so that they stand on the skin. Then we fill the vegetable with half a multi-glass of purified water, now it will not burn during baking, and sprinkle fragrant orange slices with sugar. Then we look whether there is ground cinnamon in the house or a whole stick of this spice, if we find, we send it to the rest of the products in the bowl, although you can do without it, some do not like the aroma of the dried bark of this plant. Next, close the kitchen appliance with a tight-fitting lid, set the mode to the display Baking for 30 minutes and quietly go to do other important things, waiting for the end of the program.
After the right time, the smart technique will turn off, notifying you of this with the appropriate sound signal. Immediately we do not remove the lid, just slightly open it slightly and do not wait long for the burning steam to come out. Then, using a silicone kitchen spatula, we distribute pumpkin slices in portions on plates, cool slightly, add other goodies to it at will, and offer to taste yummy for the whole family!
