Ojibwa-Style Baked Pumpkin

Last year for Thanksgiving, I cooked a Native American feast and called it: How the Other Half Ate. One of the side dishes I made was a baked pumpkin from the Ojibwa tribe in Canada.

And since Belle had given me a gorgeous, voluptuous pumpkin yesterday, I baked it last night. Three-quarters of the baked pumpkin I turned into puree for future pumpkin treats. And a quarter of it I put back in the oven this morning for breakfast.

Ojibwa-Style Baked Pumpkin...
Slice the pumpkin into wedges. Smear a bit of butter on the pumpkin or drizzle it with oil. Sprinkle with brown sugar and spices. This morning I used ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg. Bake till the pumpkin begins to brown.

I served this with some plain yogurt, granola, raspberries, green figs, mint tea and called it breakfast.
