5 pounds of pumpkin
4 pounds of sugar
3 lemons sliced thin and finely diced
1 orange sliced thin and finely diced
1 tsp of salt
Peel and cut pumpkin into pieces about 1/4th thick and finely dice or put them in a food processor and chop them finely, place in bowl with the sugar and allow to sit overnight
Remove the pumpkin pieces and bring the liquid to a boil, add the pumpkin, the lemons the orange and salt, cook very slowly on a low heat until thick to your desire, bottle and process for 15 minutes in a hot water bath process.
