Homemade Spiced Pumpkin Butter is a great gift to share with those you love, especially during the holidays. Make it on the stove top or in a slow cooker!
When the days get cooler and the sun sets earlier, we often look for comfort around the dinner table. I can think of no better place to find solace from the cold, winter winds than by sharing a meal with those we care about.
It’s when I make more of my family’s favorite comfort food meals, and one of those faves is homemade spiced pumpkin butter.
Similar in consistency to apple butter, homemade spiced pumpkin butter is good with so many things! Add it to fresh baked bread, to oatmeal, slather it on a pancake, or even drizzle some on a pork chop.
Whatever you use it in, homemade spiced pumpkin butter is a gem.
Homemade spiced pumpkin butter delivered in a small decorative jar makes a great edible gift! Pair it with a freshly baked loaf of bread, or gift all by itself, tied up with some ribbon.
In December, I will be sharing this recipe with the ladies in attendance at the annual Sherwood Oaks Christian Church Christmas breakfast. They have asked me back again this year, to share my entrepreneurial story as well as this perfect, homemade gift.
I will try to have someone shoot a video of me while I’m there. Sometimes I am funny, and last year I chose the funny route because I was so nervous! There was a big crowd there, and many of the ladies in attendance are lifelong friends, my former school teachers, parents of a friend, etc. So stay tuned!
This recipe is really easy to put together and depending on how much time you have, can be made in a slow cooker or on the stove top. One item of note: if you make it on the stove top, it may spatter a bit if you don’t stir often. Also, the longer you cook it, the thicker it gets. If you get a consistency that is too thick, then just stir in a bit of apple cider. Be sure to also taste as you go. If you aren’t a fan of the spice amounts, then start with less.
Once it is finished cooking, store the pumpkin butter in clean, airtight containers or jars. It will stay good in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. I like to think of it as spreadable pumpkin pie!
Here’s the Homemade Spiced Pumpkin Butter recipe. Enjoy!
