The Quiz: Pumpkin and sweet potato-based “picarones” are popular where?

North Africa
Peru and Chile
Portugal and Spain
Central America

Explanation : Pumpkins are native to the Americas, and in Chile and Peru, they’re incorporated into picarones, a syrup-covered doughnut. Though the picaron is a popular street food year-round, its flavors are reminiscent of fall — the recipe often uses sweet potato and pumpkin (or another squash) for the dough. Dark brown sugar, orange zest, and cloves are used in the syrup coating.
