From Sue Ruchel's book "Windfalls". This recipe is her Gran's secret recipe and you can't really taste the pumpkin. The yield is a guestimate.
- Soak the apricots overnight in 500 ml of water.
- The next day, peel the pumpkin into small chunks and cook gently in the rest of the water and lemon juice.
- Pour in the soaked apricots and water and cook for a further 10 minutes.
- Add the sugar and bring to the boil again, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
- Bottle and seal.
