I think I don't trust recipes that have such obvious errors. Also, with just the butter and oil and no other liquid, I'm wondering why it is called Brazilian Stewed Pumpkin. Perhaps a lot of moisture comes out of the pumpkin when it's cooking, but I think I'll try to find another recipe for this item.

2 WHAT cooking oil? Also butter is not listed in the ingredients. Please clarify amounts and ingredients.
