Step 1Cut the pumpkin or squash into small cubes. Mix with the sugar in a large bowl.
Step 2Slice the oranges thinly and cut the sliced roughly into quarters. Put in a separate bowl and cover with the water. Leave both bowls to stand for 24 hours, stirring the pumpkin occasionally.
Step 3Put the oranges and water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the pumpkin and sugar and bring gently to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Boil until the mixture is thick and syrupy - about 30 minutes. Pour into sterilized jars and seal.
