About this recipe:
A deliciously fruity pickle flavoured with warm spices. Pumpkin is pickled in vinegar, sugar, cinnamon and cloves. It's a great way of using up pumpkin when in-season.
1.8kg peeled pumpkin, diced
1kg caster sugar
1.2 litres distilled malt vinegar
4 cinnamon sticks
15 whole cloves

- Place the pumpkin in a large, deep bowl.
- In a large saucepan, mix the sugar, vinegar, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Boil 5 minutes. Pour the hot liquid over the pumpkin in the bowl. Cover and set aside 8 hours or overnight.
- Strain the liquid into a large saucepan. Boil 5 minutes. Remove the cinnamon sticks and cloves, leaving a few bits for decoration.
- Place the pumpkin back into the liquid and return to boiling. Boil 5 minutes or until pumpkin is transparent but crisp. Allow the mixture to cool. Transfer to sterile jars and refrigerate.
