  4. If you don't want all the pieces whole, puree them a little with a magic wand, after removing the cinnamon sticks.
  5. If you like, at this stage you can add chopped walnuts.
  6. Pour the jam into sterilized jars, close and turn upside down to create a vacuum.

Ola, I had a question about your Portuguese Pumpkin Jam with Port Wine Recipe? Would I be able to use real Pumpkin purée rather than an entire pumpkin and cook the same way? Thank you

Yes, as long as the purée equals 2 and 1/2 lbs it’s al good.
