This looks great, Uni.  I LOVE pumpkin - what sort did you use, or doesn't it matter?  I assume you start with raw pumpkin or is it pre-cooked?

This is really a dumb question, but does it taste like pumpkin?

I made this today with some pumpkin I was given at the weekend.

I made it exactly as the recipe said.  The texture is a little grainier than fruit jam but it's lovely and thick and doesn't taste at all like pumpkin.  I used ordinary Queensland Blue pumpkin.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.
