Cabell d'àngel

Cabell d'àngel (Catalan: [kəˈβɛʎ ˈdaɲʒəl]) or Cabello de ángel (Spanish: [kaˈβeʎo ðe ˈaŋxel]; literally "angel's hair") is a transparent threaded jam made from Siam pumpkin (Cucurbita ficifolia) pulp and white sugar. It originated in Mallorca but its use has spread to the rest of Spain and some countries in the Americas. Cabell d'àngel is usually flavored with stick cinnamon or citron skin. It is best when prepared in the spring, once the pumpkins have fully matured.[1]
