Pickled Pumpkin using honey

Pumpkin chips using vinegar, sugar or honey, cinnamon, mace and cloves are pictured, left.   The darker chips on the left were made with honey, those on the right with sugar. The honey ones are more mellow, covering the vinegar tang found in the sugared ones.

Pickled Pumpkin
6 cups (3 pts.) pumpkin                 2 teaspoons powdered cinnamon
5 cups (2 1/2 lbs.) sugar or honey 1 teaspoon powdered mace
1 cup (1/2 pt.) vinegar                    1 teaspoon powdered cloves

Peel pumpkin and cut into pieces one inch long and one half inch thick.  Cover with boiling water and boil until slightly tender.  Pour off water, add sugar and vinegar, and cook fifteen minutes, add spices and boil up until thoroughly mixed. Seal in jars while hot.
