Pumpkin Jam

When I saw this very simple but tasty jam is made from pumpkin, it got me curious!  With the addition of yoghurt drink and lemon juice in it, I just have to try it too! So here it is, a very unique taste with texture that somehow reminds me of the coconut jam called kaya:)
This jam is really refreshing!

Thanks to Ancoo for sharing this lovely jam.


350g Pumpkin
2 bottles (200ml) Yakult (original flavour) - I can only find the 80ml bottles here so I just used 3 x 80ml 
1/2 tbsp Lemon juice or to taste
2 tbsp Sugar or to taste
Blended into this smooth texture before cooking to desired texture

Clean pumpkin and deseed. Cut to wedges and steam pumpkin with skin on for about 15 minutes or till pumpkin becomes soft. (I skinned and cut the pumpkin into chunks before steaming)
Remove pumpkin flesh from skin with a spoon. Blend pumpkin (net weight about 250g) to smooth.
Combine blended pumpkin, yakult, lemon juice and sugar together in a pot. Stir well and bring to boil. Lower heat and keep stirring the pumpkin mixture for about 20-25 minutes until thickened. (Mine took longer because of the extra 40ml of yoghurt drink)
Pour jam into clean jar and allow to cool completely before putting it in the fridge.

I love the sweet and tangy taste of this bright looking jam that is so autumn
