Notes and Tips

Slaked lime should be use, it cannot be substituted and cannot be omitted from the recipe.

Slaked lime is used to keep shredded pumpkin firm and prevent them from turning mushy and soft when cooked in sugar syrup.

Slaked lime can scald and burn your skin, you have to be careful.

Do not throw slaked lime (white precipitate) in the sink, it will block drain pipes.
