I can't let another Tasty Tuesday go by without offering at least one recipe for pumpkin butter! Another fall favorite at my house and this easy recipe lets your crock pot do all the work, while you work elsewhere! I love to give this as a gift, it's also my husbands favorite, next to apple butter so I usually make a double batch, you might too!
2 (15-ounce) cans of canned pumpkin or about 4 cups of fresh
1 1/4 cups maple syrup
1/2 cup apple juice
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place everything in the crock pot and stir well. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. Cool before filling jars or refrigerate overnight.
Now, that was easy enough, and what a pretty gift for all your fall birthdays or hostess gifts! Plus, this will make your home smell like a pumpkin patch all day long! This recipe came from Baked Bree who shares many more! Happy pumpkin butter making days!
