Sweet Pumpkin Jam

Sweet Pumpkin Jam 1


  • 1500 kg of  pumpkin diced
  • 1 litre of water
  • 750 gr of sugar
  • 3 large organic lemons
  • 1 organic orange
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 star anise


  1. Place the diced pumpkin into a large bowl.
  2. Add the zest and the juice of orange and lemons, the cinnamon stick and the star anise.
  3. Add also the vanilla pod and its beans. Add sugar and stir until dissolved.
  4. Cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Next morning,  place the pumpkin mixture into a large stockpot and bring to a boil for about 5 min stirring continuously.
  6. Skim foam and simmer for about 15 min.
  7. Remove the vanilla pot, cinnamon stick and star anise. Bring to the boil again and simmer. Stir occasionally for about 35-40 min., or until the jam thickens.
  8. You know the jam is ready when you can draw a wooden spoon across the bottom of the pan, and see the bottom before the jam covers it again.
  9. Pour jam into clean sterilized jars.
  10. Place jars upside down until cool completely.
  11. Store in cool dark place.

  1. This looks so good! I do not have any star anise so is it ok to substitute something else? I’ve used regular anise in pumpkin pie mixes and the taste is great.

    1. Hmmmm…. I think it’s gonna be great with regular anise too…. Last year I made it only with cinnamon stick (I used two sticks instead) and I liked it almost the same!! Let me know how it turns!!! 🙂
