Instructions

  • Dice the pumpkin into 1/2 inch cubes or grate them using a food grater.

  • With a sharp knife, cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape the seeds.

  • Place grated pumpkin, vanilla seeds, sugar, anise, cinnamon and lemon juice in a saucepan and mix.

  • Place on medium high and bring the mixture to a boil.

  • Reduce heat and simmer for 30-40 minutes until the pumpkins are thoroughly cooked- keep stirring every now and then so it will not scorch.

  • You can puree using a blender or leave it as is.

  • Pour in sterilized glass jars and refrigerate.

Notes

  • If you do not have vanilla pods you can use 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • I recommend not going lower than 1 1/2 lb of sugar. Sugar is not only for sweetness it works as a preservative too.
  • I do not use jelling agents much in making jams but if you want to you can use powder or liquid pectin and just follow the instructions on the packet.
  • Use smaller sugar or pie pumpkin as they are usually more flavorful than a larger carving one.
  • You can use butternut squash in this recipe too.
  • This recipe makes about 3 (8oz) jars of pumpkin jam.
  • Serve with: toast, bagels or breakfast biscuits.
  • Please check the nutrition disclaimer policy.

👩‍🏫 My Experience

Sweet spread that makes you enjoy fall to the fullest, not very popular in Egypt but this is not the case in Tunisia and Algeria.
Everything screams pumpkin these days!!! from stores to the dentist from your neighbors with their scary jack-o’-lanterns to the … you guessed it, the internet. Although I do not like going with the flow- I do not know from where I got this habit-, I’ve decided to make a few exceptions here and there.

According to my new content manager ( my oldest), he suggested that I should make something with pumpkin this time of the year. Driven by the idea that I do not want to let him down and to make him feel his ideas are worth listening to, I’ve decided to go with the flow.
Pumpkin is not very popular in the Middle east specially Egypt, the only pumpkin recipe that is really popular there is this pumpkin with bechamel recipe .
