Pumpkin Butter

pumpkin-butter-049-768x1024-1 Pumpkins and more pumpkins! I love pumpkins! My first attempt this year to grow my own pumpkins turned out great. My one plant produced 13 beautiful orange pumpkins of various sizes. All but 2 are still waiting on my sun porch for their time in the oven. I am in pumpkin heaven! 🙂 Today I want to share a simple but so delicious recipe for pumpkin butter. If you have never tried pumpkin butter you are in for a treat.

You’ll need:

4 cups pumpkin puree

3/4 cup apple cider or juice

1 cup sucanat or brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoon ginger

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cloves

In a large pot on the stove mix all the ingredients together and bring to a boil stirring often. Be careful because it is thick and can splatter and splash out of the pot. Ouch!

Simmer over a low heat for about 30 minutes. Stir often.

 That’s it. Refrigerate or can under pressure. It is so delicious!

    I’ve never made pumpkin butter, but it looks so easy and delicious that I must try. Perhaps I will make it with a big butternut squash I just bought. Thanks for sharing!
