I also came across a recipe for Portuguese Pumpkin Jam.
This is a real winner. Unusual, very tasty, great on sourdough toast , quick and easy to make as well.
Here is what you do.
Portuguese Pumpkin Jam
1.5 kilo pumpkin, weigh it after you have peeled and cut it into small pieces.
1.5 kilo sugar
grated zest and juice of two lemons
1 heaped tablespoon of grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp cumin powder
Put the pumpkin and half a cup of water in a heavy based pan and cook until it is soft.
Add sugar and stir until dissolved
Add lemon zest and juice and boil until the jam is thick and luscious looking, took less than twenty minutes.
bottle while hot
I think it looks absolutely beautiful in the jar as well. also very pretty in a white bowl!
