Homemade Pumpkin Butter

October 14, 2012

Homemade pumpkin butter is no match for the store bought brand.  Unlike what the name suggests, fruits butters contain no butter at all.  It is actually a puree that is cooked with sugar and spices until it has reduced and become thick.  Pumpkin puree is perfect with your morning toast, delicious as a pie filling, or mixed with cream cheese to make frosting. 

Pumpkin Butter

1 cup Brown Sugar (packed)
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon  Pumpkin Pie Spice
Simmer all items in a pot until most of the liquid has evaporated and the pumpkin butter has thickened. Store in a sealable plastic container in the fridge and enjoy.
