1 3/4 cups
solid pack pumpkin puree
pumpkin pie spice
This was delicious. It was almost like having pumpkin pie. Friends and family have asked me for this recipe because they loved it so much.
I did not have very good luck with this recipe. I thought the apple overpowered the pumpkin. I kept adding spices and pumpkin until it didn't taste as much like applesauce. If I attempt pumpkin butter again, I will try a recipe that doesn't call for as much applesause/apple juice.
I added a shake or two more of cinnamon than the recipe called for. Instead of doing on the stove, I brought to boil and put in a crock pot on high for 4 hours. Worked wonderfully.
Not too sweet (which some may dislike). Simple to make, and pumpkin lovers will enjoy it.
If you use the standard
"halloween" pumpkin, use LOTS of spice! It's pretty bland....
Great recipe. I had about 2.5 cups of fresh "pie pumpkin" and used that with the applesauce. I liked it a little more pumpkin-y than the original recipe. The other change I made was that I did not add the spice. My son has some food allergies and the pumpkin butter was for him. We used the final product in smoothies, on toast, and in pumpkin muffins.
What made this recipe different from the others was the use of BROWN sugar instead of white. I did it in a slow cooker on low overnight. So good.
Very easy and delicious! I jarred it, decorated it, and gave it as Christmas gifts!
