What to do with all that pumpkin after Halloween? You can make delicious Puerto Rican 'Barriguitas de Vieja'. These are delicous fruituras made with mashed pumpkin and spices, then fried. These delicious fritters are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Almost like a soft donut with crispy edges. Barrigas de Vieja means “the belly of an old lady”, because they are flabby, soft and without a consistent shape. It's a funny name, but these sweet pumpkin fritters are truly delicious. It's an easy recipe, just dump the ingredients together, mix and fry. You can make the batter the day before and refrigerate until ready to use. Finger licking good. See our recipe now.
