Mise en place

  • Wash the pumpkin well, chop into manageable slices and boil in unsalted water until soft, about 15 to 20 minutes will be sufficient for most squashes.
  • Scoop the flesh out of the skins and reserve. This is much easier than trying to peel the squash before boiling.

Method

  1. Rub the flesh through a sieve into a large pan
  2. Zest and juice all 6 lemons discarding pips and pith
  3. Add the juice, zest and sugar to the flesh and slowly bring to the boil. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring often
  4. Allow to cool and store in clean sterilised jars as you would for jam
  5. It should set once cool
