Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 15 ounces (425 g) pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (400 g) granulated sugar


  1. Combine pumpkin puree, orange juices, spices, and sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook over high heat until the mixture begins to boil. Continue to cook while stirring constantly for 10 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to sterile glass jars, seal and refrigerate until ready to serve.


Pumpkin: You can use fresh pureed pumpkin or canned pumpkin puree. Either one will work. Of course, fresh is always better.

Sugar: Yes, 2 cups of sugar sounds like a lot. The two main ingredients in jams are fruit and sugar, used in a 1:1 ratio. The large amount of sugar acts as a preservative allowing the jam to be stored for a longer period of time. If you reduce the sugar, expect the jam to spoil or mold sooner than the suggested storage time.

The jam will keep for up to 3 months stored in the refrigerator.
