Autumn Preserve

Package this jam in decorative jars for a perfect gift this holiday season as well. I have been all about pumpkin EVERYTHING this season. I seriously just want to make all the things with pumpkin.

Pumpkin

For making this pumpkin jam steamed the pumpkin instead of boiling it. Steaming softens vegetables while maintaining most of their nutrients, especially water-soluble compounds that are easily damaged by heat. Whether you use an electric steamer, a bamboo steamer, or a microwaveable plastic bag or dish, steam vegetables will retain more texture, flavor, and nutritional value when you prepare them with this indirect form of heat and moisture.

Pumpkin Jam

Also, I don’t recommend reducing the amount of sugar. Sugar isn’t only a sweetener because it also acts as a preservative. It helps to jam to stay long. I honestly never make jam for long-term storage. It goes in the fridge and gets consumed within a month or two.

Cinnamon Pumpkin Jam

Pumpkin Jam makes the most out of squash season, lusciously smooth, sweet, and rich with savory pumpkin notes and scented lightly with roasted cloves, cinnamon, and orange, lime for a comforting Autumn preserve.
