    This is a very good jam you may not think it will work but it's great!! make sure you take the time and cut up pumpkin all into small bits and use good ginger and processor it well (smooth) well worth the try Chardine  -  29 Apr 2016


    Seems too easy, is so easy AND tastes out of this world! I shall never again need to worry what to do with an over abundace of pumpkin. I know pumpkin keeps for ever when not cut but its the halves and more that get left behind and usually end up feeding the ducks and chicken - until this recipe. Thanks!  -  26 Nov 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
