Pumpkin Butter I
Be careful what kind of pumpkin you use. :) I had extra pumpkins from the garden so I thought I'd use one instead of the commercially canned pumpkin puree specified in this recipe. I then discovered that there is definitely a texture difference between "field" and "pie" pumpkins. (I always thought the difference was all about their relative sizes.) Field pumpkins produce a somewhat stringy, but still tasty pumpkin butter. I made this recipe again with a store-bought pie pumpkin and the butter was very smooth with a richer flavor. (By the way, I'm using the stringy batch in muffins instead of milk and oil and they are delicious--and low fat!)
