Hiya Bohemianpeony, the nutrition is based on 64 portions of 1 tablespoon each. It makes approximately 2 litres worth, so it all depends on your jars. If you have small jam jars (about 225g), you should get about 8 jars. Good luck, let us know how it goes! - 07 Dec 2011


This looks like a lovely recipe. I might make some for family for Christmas. How many jars do you think roughly this recipe would make? Also, what are your serving suggestions if you don't mind? Thank You!!! X - 05 Dec 2011


Ah, smashing! Incredible stuff here. Who knew (you, my dear)! We've never got pumpkin, but we're always "over-loaded" on other winter squashes; I made this with mostly acorn squash. Gosh, terrific stuff! Most hearty thanks to you. - 26 Mar 2011
