How to Make Pumpkin Fudge

Step-by-Step

  1. Butter a 13x9-inch baking pan.
  2. In a heavy two-quart saucepan, combine sugar, butter, milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat.
  3. Boil over medium-low heat until mixture registers 234 on a candy thermometer. This should take about 25 minutes.
