Instructions
  1. Prepare the pumpkin by cutting into quarters and discarding out the seeds and peeling it.
  2. Then slice into wedges like you would prepare a melon.
  3. Chop the pumpkin into 2 cm cubes.
  4. Place pumpkin into a pan. Add the spices, sugar and the orange juice.
  5. Bring to the boil 50 minutess or until the pumpkin is easily squashed with a wooden spoon. The mixture will be thick and a clear orange color -- almost translucent.
  6. Smash the pumpkin with a wooden spoon , or if you want a very smooth jam, use a blender.
  7. Spoon hot jam into sterilized jars and close immediately.
