Maple Pumpkin Butter

Hi Everyone,

Boy this weather is confusing!  Last week it was chilly, in the 60’s and this past week it was in the 80’s and 90’s.  Then of course this weekend, cooler weather only in the 60’s.  Figures because I have the Food/Daily Buzz event this weekend!  At least it’s not suppose to rain.  Are you going to the Food Buzz event?

Today I have for you a sugar-free Maple Pumpkin Butter for you!  I love this pumpkin Butter, not only is it guilt-free, it tastes fantastic in yogurt, on oatmeal and on pumpkin bread!!

This pumpkin butter is not very sweet, but me my guest to add some brown sugar to it.  There are some things that I like sweet, like a chocolaty dessert, but not pumpkin butter.  This is more on the spicy side.  I used spiced apple cider, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and homemade pumpkin puree to make it.  It really tastes fantastic!!!  The whole process takes about 30 minutes to make if you use canned pumpkin!!  It’s thick, creamy and oh so good!!   I even eat it like it was applesauce.

Since I had so much Maple Pumpkin Butter, I placed them in 3 mason jar and placed in my refrigerator once they cooled.   I love homemade pumpkin butter, so much better than store-bought.  You can control the taste and ingredients that go in it.  Do you like pumpkin butter?  What do you put it on?

Well my Friends, time to go.  I won’t be online much this weekend, but I’ll be checking in from time to time!
