    This jam tastes just like pumpkin pie. It's fantastic spread on toast, bagels, muffins or anything you fancy. When presented in a fancy jar, it also makes a wonderful food gift.

    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
