Spicy Pumpkin Confiture

Ingredients for 1 serving

2 cups pumpkin cut into small cubes

2 lemons

2/3 cup water

3/4 cup sugar

1 vanilla pod

2 cloves

1 stick of cinnamon

4 cardamom pods

Spicy Pumpkin Confiture


Cook water, sugar and lemon juice into a light syrup. Add the small cubes of pumpkin and spices including vanilla pod (scraped free of the grains).

Let the mixture simmer until the pumpkin starts to become transparent, about 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the cubes.

Pour into a scalded glass jar and enjoy it with crackers and matured cheddar.

TIP: If you want a more classic jam, boil the pumpkin tender with lemon and water. Then, when the pumpkins are tender, add the sugar. When the sugar has been added, it must cook for about 10 minutes.

If you want to add spices, add them from the beginning, so the jam can get the most flavor!
