  • 1 15-ounce can (425 g) pumpkin puree sometimes just called "pumpkin"
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • teaspoon fresh ground or dry nutmeg
  • teaspoon teaspoon salt
  1. Wash jars and lids (tops) in hot soapy water or run through the dishwasher.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large pot or Dutch oven and stir to combine. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Maintain a steady boil and cook for 15-20 minutes stirring frequently to keep the jam from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Each time you stir, also scrape down the sides of the pot. I like to use a silicone heat-resistant spatula for stirring and scraping.
  3. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the jam has reduced by over half and is beginning to thicken. Jam will thicken more as it cools. Transfer to clean jars and cover with lids. Allow to cool to room temperature then refrigerate or freeze
