DIRECTIONS

  • If using fresh pumpkin, peel, remove seeds, cut into 2-3" chunks and place in large pot with enough water to prevent scorching. I use approximately 1/2 cup of water.
  • When soft, mash and sieve pumpkin to make a puree of the pumpkin.
  • If watery, gently simmer to evaporate much of this water. Add sugar and allow to stand for 12 hours. Cut apricots into eighths, approximately the size of your raisins.
  • Add raisins, apricots lemon juice, and spices to pumpkin which has stood with sugar.
  • Cook slowly on medium heat until the mixture is thickened. Seal, and process in boiling water bath 10 minutes.
