How to Make Pumpkin Jam

I have an abundance of pumpkin to use this year and have made some pretty tasty things already. You can use your own pumpkin you baked (tutorial here!) or buy a store bought can. Each year I pick a new jam/jelly to make and like to gift some of my jars during the holiday season.

Pumpkin Jam Recipe

4 C Pureed Pumpkin
4 C Sugar
4 C Water
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1 tsp Ground Ginger
Pinch Ground Nutmeg
1 tsp Almond or Vanilla Extract
Zest of 1 Lemon or of 1 orange
4 T Lemon juice
2 tsp Cointreau or Triple Sec

* In a pan, stir together all ingredients and bring to the boil.  Lower the heat and let the mixture simmer for about 45-60 minutes, until thick. Pour into clean/sterilized jam jars/pots.Seal the jars hermetically. Let cool.
