I love pumpkin and it is a kind of pity that they are no longer available after Halloween. Fortunately I bought a lot, so we could enjoy it as soup, side dish and cake. I also saved some in the freezer. But I still had a nice piece left, so I have made pumpkin jam. It is fast and easy:
- Peel the pumpkin, remove the seeds and cut it in small pieces.
- Put them in a pot with a little bit of freshly pressed orange juice.
- Add some cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves, vanilla, honey, brown sugar, and finely grated orange peel.
- Cook until becomes soft.
- Mix with a hand blender.
So the wonderful pumpkin is preserved and can be enjoyed even longer! If you use less sugar/honey, the jam goes well with meat, for example duck.
