Jams and jellies‎ > ‎


Makes about 2 jars

500 g pumpkin, peeled and diced (seeds removed)
100ml orange juice
500g sugar

Put the pumpkin chunks into a large pan with the orange juice. Bring to the boil and simmer until tender. Remove from heat and mash slightly with a potato masher or a blender (depending on how chunky you like your jam)
Whilst pumpkin still warm, add the sugar. Melt the sugar on a low heat, stirring all the time. When sugar is melted, bring mixture to the boil and cook until it reaches 104 degrees C. 
Pour into sterilised jars and store in a cool dry place.
