The first thing to do to make homemade pumpkin jam is to marinate the pumpkin the previous day. We will peel this vegetable and cut it up into small pieces, then throw it in a pot and cover with a little water in the right amount to cover. Add the sugar and raisins and let it all sit overnight.
The next day you can already start preparing the jam recipe. For this, you have to put the marinated pumpkin in a new pot or pan. Add the butter, lemon juice, cinnamon stick and a pinch of salt. Light the fire and put it under all ingredients and stir to prevent sticking.
To find out when the pumpkin jam is ready just do a simple test: take a teaspoon and put it on a plate, put it in the refrigerator for 1 minute. If the paste is consistent when you take your finger out, you can put out the fire because the recipe is ready. If, on the contrary, the texture is still wet, you'll have to wait a few more minutes. Normally, the average time is around 30 minutes, so you have to be patient and go about stirring to prevent sticking.
Typically, the jam coming out at the beginning has lumps. If you do not like the texture you can use the mixer to create thinner lump free jam. Yum yum. Before turning chucking it all in the fridge, it is advisable to withdraw the cinnamon stick.
And you're done! Now you can save your Pumpkin Jam in glass containers in the fridge and it will last as long as possible. It's a homemade recipe without no nasty chemical preservatives, so the maximum time that it can be unspoiled is approximately two months.
