Quick and Easy Homemade Pumpkin Butter in the Crockpot

31 Dec

Pumpkin Butter on homemade bread what a treat!

If you remember back a couple of months ago I cooked and puree a pumpkin.  My freezer currently contains 28 cups of pumpkin (in 2 cup bags) so I have been trying to think of some creative ways to use it.  Hence homemade pumpkin butter.  It was so easy and it is delicious!  I think it would make a great addition to a brunch or as a gift for a friend!  This recipe makes slightly over 1 pint. 

Crockpot Pumpkin Butter

  • 2 cups cooked pumpkin or 1 15 oz. can.
  • 1 cup each white sugar and brown sugar.
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. nutmeg
  • 1/2 t. ginger
  • 1/8 t. ground cloves
  • Combine in a 1.5 quart crock pot and cook about 4 hours stirring often (every 10-15 minutes) so it does not burn.  Enjoy!
