Homemade Pumpkin Butter



As I have mentioned before I really love all things pumpkin and every year during October & November I go to the store to buy at least 2 jars of pumpkin butter, I simply adore this stuff. This year while I was on Kevin's site Closet Cooking he had posted a Pumpkin Butter recipe that just made me squeal in ecstasy. I could not believe that I could make this fabulous stuff at home let alone how darn simple his recipe was. I could not wait to try this recipe out for myself, pumpkin butter is great on toast, peanut butter sammies, waffles and pancakes. If you love pumpkin as much as I do I highly recommend trying this recipe for yourself. Kevin's version was fantastic but I did change it just a little, try either one and I bet you will just love it as much as we did.


2 C. - Pumpkin Puree
1 C. - Brown Sugar (packed)
½ C. - Simply Apple or Apple Cider
¼ Tsp. - Cinnamon
¼ Tsp. - Nutmeg
¼ Tsp. - Pumpkin Pie Spice


Simmer all items in a pot until most of the liquid has evaporated and the pumpkin butter has thickened. Store in a sealable plastic container in the fridge and enjoy.

I've made apple butter many times but never pumpkin. This looks so easy to make and I can almost taste it on a warm scone.

Grace said...

this may be the only form of pumpkin i'll ever enjoy because other than the pumpkin, i'm in love with every ingredient. :)

Hi Mary Beth ~ This looks so delicious. (And to think I was just tempted the other day with Stonewall Kitchen's version. I would MUCH prefer homemade!) Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Thank you for your sweet comments over on my blog. And YAY!! I'm always happy to meet more bloggers from the PacNW. :)
