I found this recipe on Better Homes and Gardens and I knew I had to try it out.  I’ve had apple butter many times but I’ve never tried pumpkin butter.  It quickly became a favorite with everyone in the family.

Plus, it is so easy to make!  I used canned pumpkin puree but if you have your own pumpkin puree, even better!!  I used maple syrup to naturally sweeten this but you could also try honey.  You could also use about 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar depending on how sweet you like it.

About this pumpkin butter:

  • Use a larger pan to help contain the splatter.  This pumpkin butter will splatter some when you are simmering and the taller sides will help.
  • This can make a wonderful homemade gift!  It’s ok if it’s not refrigerated for the time period you are gifting it.  Another great homemade sauce for gifts would be this salted caramel sauce!
  • This pumpkin butter will last for up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator!  Yay!  So, make a batch and enjoy it all through the fall.
  • My recipe makes about 2 cups worth of pumpkin butter.
