  1. Peel the pumpkin and clean it of threads and seeds.
  2. Cut into very small pieces and place in a pan, with all the other ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.
  3. Bring to a boil, and let it boil over low heat for approximately one hour, stirring occasionally, until the jam is ready.
  4. If you don't want all the pieces whole, puree them a little with a magic wand, after removing the cinnamon sticks.
  5. If you like, at this stage you can add chopped walnuts.
  6. Pour the jam into sterilized jars, close and turn upside down to create a vacuum.

Ola, I had a question about your Portuguese Pumpkin Jam with Port Wine Recipe? Would I be able to use real Pumpkin purée rather than an entire pumpkin and cook the same way? Thank you

Yes, as long as the purée equals 2 and 1/2 lbs it’s al good.
