I’ve made apple butter plenty of times but never pumpkin butter, that is until yesterday.  It is sooooooooo good!  I think I might even enjoy it more than apple butter.  As usual I didn’t follow just one recipe I combined a couple and took my favorite things from each recipe to make my own.  The best thing I changed about the recipes was making it in the crock pot instead of over the stove.  Thank God for the person who invented crock pots, right?!  Pair this delicious Pumpkin Butter with a loaf of bread for a great Thanksgiving gift!


29 oz pumpkin puree

1 1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 1/2 C sugar


Mix all these ingredients in a crock pot and warm on high for about 3 hours, stirring occasionally.  It’s as easy as that!

*I used homemade pumpkin puree wich has a more watery consistency than that of canned pumpkin puree.  If you find your pumpkin butter is too thick you can thin it with a little apple juice.
