“Pickled pumpkin is a holiday tradition waiting to happen! Diced pumpkin is pickled overnight in vinegar with sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Use 1 cup of water along with the vinegar for a milder flavor. The longer the pickled pumpkin is stored before serving, the better it tastes. Rescue all those poor Halloween pumpkins by doubling or tripling the recipe for pickled pumpkin throughout the holidays.” - by Elin Gottschalk
Original recipe yields 16 cups
- Place the pumpkin in a large, deep bowl.
- In a large saucepan, mix the sugar, vinegar, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Boil 5 minutes. Pour the hot liquid over the pumpkin in the bowl. Cover and set aside 8 hours, or overnight.
- Strain the liquid into a large saucepan. Boil 5 minutes. Remove the cinnamon sticks and cloves, leaving a few bits for decoration. Place the pumpkin back into the liquid and return to boiling. Boil 5 minutes, or until pumpkin is transparent but crisp. Allow the mixture to cool. Transfer to sterile jars and refrigerate.

"Just like my German grandmother made! I would add some notes: 1. Do not use carving pumpkin. Use pie or sugar pumpkins - they are smaller and in my area were labeled "pie" pumpkins. Carving pumpk..." See moreins and pie pumpkins are NOT the same. Right after Thanksgiving, the priced dropped by half. 2. I followed the reciped exactly. You might be tempted to cook longer than five minutes because the pumpkin will not be completely translucent. DON'T do it! 5 minutes at a rolling boil is just right. They will continue to get translucent after removing from heat. This recipe yields a sweet/sour, flavorful, crisp pickle. 3. 5 pie pumpkins = 7+ lbs. of uncooked pumpkin and 8 qts. pickled."
