Step 1

Cream together shortening and sugar, beat in eggs, pumpkin and water. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Add to pumpkin mixture. Stir in nuts. Pour mixture into greased wide mouth, pint jars filling 1/2 full.

Bake at 325°F for 45 minutes. When done, remove one jar at a time, wipe sealing edge with paper towel or cloth, and screw cap on tightly. The heat will vacuum seal the jar and the bread will keep up to 1 year.
