Pumpkin Jam is a great way to use up pumpkin around Halloween time. When we carve our Halloween pumpkins, I always keep back some of the pumpkin to make a batch or two of this jam. You will need some muslin cloth for this recipe.

This jam couldn’t be easier to make – simply boil the ingredients for about 30 minutes. Transfer to sterilized jars for storing. To sterilize the jars, I heat the jars and lids in a 212°F oven for about 15 minutes to ensure the jars are warm when you put the hot jam in them.

To make Pumpkin Jam, you will need the following ingredients:
