Pumpkin Butter








 Pumpkin Butter is great on toast, muffins, bagels, and pancakes! 
Some even suggest using it as an ice cream topping.

The recipe is from an old Family Circle Magazine. 

Ingredients:

15 ounces Libby's Solid Pack Pumpkin
2/3 cup brown sugar -- firmly packed
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon  lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Directions:

In medium saucepan, combine ingredients; mix well. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.

Reduce heat, simmer 20 minutes or until thickened- stirring occasionally.

Pour hot mixture into sterilized canning jars*. Seal immediately.

 
I didn't can the butter, the information on this post gives you the reason why.

NOTE:  Pumpkin Butter may be stored in an airtight container in refrigerator for several weeks or frozen several months. Made three 4 ounce jars.

* If you have canning jars you can use them as I did. When the butter is cooked, fill the jars with the mixture. Once sealed wait to cool before adding to refrigerator.

    1. The butter in the photo is in a canning jar. You can use any clean sterilized glass jar. Example- empty jam or mustard jar. Store it in the fridge up to two weeks but I bet it will be gone by then.

  5. That looks so yummy Linda. The reason I don't can much anymore is that i'm afraid of botulism. can't see it, can't smell it. scary enough.

    1. The article was a wake up call about pumpkin and you know what? This won't last 2 weeks. It's good and you will be eating it with a spoon.

  8. Oh I love Pumpkin Butter and I get it at Calder's Dairy when it comes out this time of the year. We have a small Calder's Dairy just two blocks from me. But its so expensive for a small jar. I will try to make my own and I am sure it won't be as expensive to make. Thank you for posting this.

  20. I have been canning this recipe for years! But I place fresh pureed pumpkin and all ingredients in a crock pot for 10 hours and stirring it here and there! Then I placed in clean pint sized jars and placed in water bath for 45 minutes, let cool and this will stay in your pantry for a year!
