I'm wishing all of my Canadian friends a happy Thanksgiving. Hope your day is filled with family, friends and good food!
This recipe has become a seasonal share with you. If you haven't tried it yet, you've missed a treat that only comes when fresh pumpkins are in the markets. On your table, or prettily packaged to take to the host/hostess when you're invited to dinner, this is a winner.
I believe this recipe is from a long, long ago Gourmet. It's written on a recipe card and there are no notes regarding changing anything but it's possible that I did and, if I did, it worked. They are delicious!

2 cups pumpkin balls (use the larger end of a melon baller)

6 whole allspice
4 2" strips of lemon peel
Combine all ingredients except the pumpkin in a stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for five minutes.
Add the pumpkin balls and simmer for fifteen minutes.
Transfer to a pint jar and pour the liquid over.
Chill at least three hours or up to a week.
