2 1/2 pints (5 cups) stewed pumpkin. 2 oranges. 2 1/2 lbs. (5 cups) sugar.
Put some peeled pumpkin through a food chopper, then stew, and measure it. Add the sugar, the grated rinds and pulp of the oranges and cook very' slowly until clear. Pour into glasses and cover.
Another Method: Take ripe, yellow pumpkins, cut them in large pieces, peel, and scrape out all the stringy portions. Weigh the pieces, and allow two cupfuls of sugar and one small lemon or orange to each pound of pumpkin. Grate the pumpkin on a coarse grater, mix with it the sugar and the rind and strained juice of the lemon or orange.
Boil slowly, stirring frequently, and skimming if necessary, until it is smooth and thick.
Pour at once into small glass jars or tumblers and cover with melted paraffin.
