Preparation / Directions:
"When pumpkins are well ripened, peel and cut into 3 inch strips and string on strong twine, using a large strong needle to string the pumpkin. When pumpkin is strung, hang in bright sunlight during the day until it is thoroughly dried.
Store in ventilated bags and hang in cool place. When ready to use, cook pumpkin in very little water over low heat until it is tender and well cooked.
Drain liquid from pumpkin if there is any left when done. Fry 2 strips bacon for each serving. Remove and put aside. Fry pumpkin in pan where bacon was fried until well seasoned. Remove to serving dish and crumble bacon on top."
