Default Pumpkin Jam

Use a fresh pumpkin. The best are the small ones bred for baking, with names like "Sugar Pie".

To prepare it, don't bake it -- you will ruin the flavor. Instead, first wash it off in the sink with a kitchen scrub brush. Then either:
  • Set up a chair or something in your yard where you'd like to have some new mulch
  • Put the pumpkin on it, and bring over your Dremel Tool with the wood shaping attachment
  • Scrub all the pumpkin shell off with the shaping tool
  • Bring it back inside and cut it in 8ths
  • Scrap off the coarse fibers and seeds
OR
  • Cut the pumpkin into 8ths
  • Scrap off the coarse fibers and seeds
  • Cut the 8ths into 1 inch or so wide strips
  • Use a pairing knife to cut the shell from the flesh



Cut the remaining flesh into smaller pieces.
Put them in a food processor with a grating attachment.
When you've finished, you should have a bowl that looks like it is full of grated carrots.
Measure how many cups of grated pumpkin you have, without smashing the gratings too much into the measuring cup. Measuring in a quart-size container is best.

Now from here, you are basically going to follow the procedure for making Fruit Preserves and storing them in Sterile Jars.
However, when you put the grated pumpkin in the stock pot:
  • add 3/4 cup water for every quart (4 cups) of grated pumpkin
Also: do not add a thickener.
When the water and pumpkin gratings have heated up to about 130 (F), add:
  • add 1 cup sugar for every quart of grated pumpkin
  • add 1 teaspoon salt for every quart of grated pumpkin
  • add 1 teaspoon cinnamon for every quart of grated pumpkin
  • add 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg for every quart of grated pumpkin

Now what to do with pumpkin jam? Well, each pint you make is a very easily made pumpkin pie in the future. But best of all, serve it on toast or homemade biscuits!
