Yasmin Khan's Candied Pumpkin With Tahini And Date Syrup

Candied pumpkin is a popular sweet in Turkey, where it can either be cooked on the stove or in an oven and then served plain as it is, or—for a fancier version—topped with kaymak, or tahini and date syrup. I’ve opted for the oven method here for ease and speed so, while you need to start this the night before you want to eat it, there is very little to do other than bake the pumpkin.
