Directions

With a 1-inch melon-ball cutter scoop out enough balls from the flesh of a pumpkin to measure 2 cups. In an enameled or stainless steel saucepan combine 1 2/3 cups sugar, 3/4 cup cider vinegar, 1/2 cup water, 1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces, 6 cloves, 6 whole allspice, and four 2-inch strips of lemon peel, bring the liquid to a boil over moderate heat, stirring and washing down any sugar crystals clinging to the sides of the pan with a brush dipped in cold water until the sugar is dissolved, and cook syrup, undisturbed, for 5 minutes. Add the pumpkin balls, simmer the mixture for 15 minutes, and transfer the balls with a slotted spoon to a 1-pint jar. Reduce the syrup over high heat to 1 cup, pour it and the spices over the balls, and let the mixture cool. Chill the mixture, covered, for at least 3 hours. Transfer the pickles to a small serving bowl. Keep covered and chilled, for 1 week.
