The  autumn is characterized as a time of transition, a season in which we move from summer heat to winter cold pure characteristic. It is a few months, therefore, of change, of decrease of light and also of the arrival of bad weather. A time, why not? Wonderful, unique, in which the leaves fall to give space later in spring to a new birth.

As with any other season,  during the fall we can find certain foods that we can not consume the rest of the year. They basically consist of what is usually known as  seasonal foods . That is to say, foods whose optimal point of maturation and therefore of consumption translates only during some months of the year.

And what are the  proper foods of autumn ? Without any doubt, we can mention especially the delicious chestnuts, mushrooms, figs, persimmons … And the exquisite pumpkins. Although it is true that today it is possible to consume pumpkin practically all year round, the truth is that we are facing a very characteristic food of autumn.

Pumpkin jam recipe, easy to make

Ingredients:

  • 1 kg of pumpkin
  • 500 gr of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • Thickener (for example, agar-agar)

Pumpkin marmalade elaboration:

  1. Wash the pumpkin well, peel it, remove its seeds and cut it into small pieces with the help of a knife. Put some pieces of pumpkin in the bottom of the pan, alternating with layers of sugar.
  2. Squeeze the lemon to obtain its juice, add the tablespoon of lemon juice and let it macerate for 12 hours.
  3. After this time put the pumpkin to the fire and bring to a boil. Just when it starts to boil add 6 grams of agar-agar, cooking until the jam has obtained the consistency that you like.
  4. To finish, once it is ready, put the jam in glass jars, cover them and make the vacuum by turning them overand reserving for a few hours.

Some secrets to making a perfect pumpkin jam

The key to making a perfect pumpkin jam (or almost perfect) is to use high quality ingredients. For this,  the most advisable thing is to always use organic farming squash , so that in this way we will be sure that no pesticides or chemical products have been used for its cultivation.

In addition,  another key is in the thickener . Although the ideal is to make jams with fruits that have a high pectin content (which will provide the thick consistency, such as quince, plum or apples), the pumpkin does not stand out precisely because of its contribution in pectin.

Although some chefs advise mixing the original ingredient (in this case the pumpkin) with some pieces of a fruit with a high pectin content (such as quince), we risk altering the flavor of the original jam.

Therefore,  it is best to use some natural thickener , as for example is the case of  agar-agar . In these cases, the ideal is to use a ratio of 6 grams per kilo of jam.
