“This recipe sounds intriguing and just right for the fall season. I clipped it from a magazine. I haven't made it, but would love to hear feedback. I am thinking that some diced candied ginger would add to the flavour. NOTE: Prep time does not include time it takes to prepare jars. It is an estimation of the time needed to peel & cube the pumpkin.”
