Let's start!

You will need:

- Large pumpkin, around 9Kg/18pounds
- Sugar
- Salt
- Cinnamon
- Nuts

Start by cutting open the pumpkin and remove the seeds carefuly so as not to remove the fruity filaments they lie in, as they give texture to the jam.
Wash the seeds thoroughly and save them.

Cut the pumpking in small pieces, removing the bark, and wash it. Put the pumpkin pieces in a large pot with water. Boil it until it's soft.

so, no water is added this time??

You are correct. We only need water to cook the raw pumpkin.

Here we are reducing the pulp and caramelizing the natural/added sugar contents.

Let me know how it went for you!

I'm glad you've liked it! That's exactly a delicious way to eat the jam. Another I use regularly is on simply a bun for in betwen meals at work.

Try it with fresh ricotta. You'll be amazed by the taste, a true delight for the pallate!
