6 cups prepared pumpkin
2 cups white vinegar
2 cups sugar
2 large sticks whole cinnamon
Prepare pumpkin by peeling, cubing and discarding seeds and inner pulp. Place
pumpkin cubes in colander and set over boiling water. Make sure water does not
touch pumpkin. Cover and steam until just tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain. Simmer
vinegar, sugar and cinnamon for 15 minutes. Add pumpkin and simmer 3 minutes.
Set aside for 24 hours. Heat and simmer 5 minutes more. Remove cinnamon sticks.
Pack boiling hot in hot canning jars, leaving 1/2-inch headroom. Adjust lids and
process in hot water bath for 10 minutes.
Makes 3 pints.
