Pumpkin Spread :: Dżem z Dyni

photo: mój ogrodek

Last week a friend of mine served this pumpkin spread with me. To be honest I was a little hesitant at first - pumpkin jam?! Really? But it was SO tasty that i asked her for the recipe! I made my first batch today. It's great on toast or Polish sweet bread (chałka). It's super easy to make! What a great way to add some fall pumpkin to your table!

Pumpkin Citrus Spread:

2kg pumpkin (i used hokkaido and roasted it in the oven and blended it with the skin on!)
350-450 g sugar
1 lemon
2 oranges
1tsp cinnamon
1tsp vanilla

In pot place cut pumpkin, orange and lemon. Add sugar and cinnamon.
Cook until soft. Mix into a cream. Put in jars (that have been boiled and
wipe rims & lids with alcohol. Close and set upside down until cool.

Here is a picture of the pumpkin i used to make it (not to be confused with the fall decorations beside the spread in the above 2 pictures ;)
