750g pumpkin, peeled and cubed
750g sweet potato, peeled and cubed
¾ cup of water
1.5 kilos of sugar
Juice and rind of 2 lemons
1 tablespoon made up of ground cinnamon and cardamom
Place in heavy based pan pumpkin, sweet potato & water, put lid on and steam until it can be mashed, at this point add sugar and stir with wooden spoon over gentle heat until dissolved. All lemon zest, juice, spices and boil for 20 minutes until glossy and thick. While still hot, place in hot sterilized jars, sealing while hot. I use this as an alternative to marmalade.
