Directions:

Then let the pumpkin soak in water for at the minimum 20 minutes. Then take the pumpkin out of the water and place in a pot with water and bring to a boil. Let it boil for 10 minutes and drain.

Step 2:  The next step in Goshen’s pumpkin sushi add the pumpkin and the fish stock or water into a saucepan. Add the cooking wine, soy sauce, and sugar to the saucepan and let all the ingredients simmer uncovered on a low heat.  After almost all the liquid has evaporated take out the pumpkin and let cool. Then pat down the pumpkin until dry.

Step 3: Cut the seaweed sheet in half crosswise and make the Maki-sushi with the prepared pumpkin and rice. Cut each roll of sushi rolls in 4 equally large pieces. Then you are ready to enjoy Goshen’s pumpkin sushi.
