While October is famed as pumpkin season, most people will only recognise this fleshy squash as a Jacko’ lantern, carved in spooky designs, displayed for Halloween and then discarded. But there are plenty of more tasty ways to use a pumpkin, whether you’ve got one leftover from Halloween or have cultivated one on the allotment. Why not try our spiced pumpkin jam recipe!
Pumpkin and Ginger Jam Recipe
While jam is usually associated with summertime berries that are tangy yet sweet, pumpkins differ in size and colour, but they are actually relatively sweet, making them the perfect flavour base for a smooth and silky jam. With pumpkin spice all the rage you can be bang on trend with our pumpkin and ginger jam recipe which makes three 500g jars with just a single pumpkin!
