Pumpkin Candy

The name pumpkin is derived from the Greek word meaning ‘large melon,’ which is ‘pepon.’ This word was translated into the French language as ‘pompom,’ and heard by the English as ‘pumpion,’ and eventually the American colonists evolved it into the now familiar name of ‘pumpkin.’ The origin of pumpkin pie comes from the colonists as well. They would remove the stem and seeds of the pumpkin and fill the inside with milk, spices, and honey. Then the pumpkin would be baked in hot ashes and enjoyed.
