Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a 6 quart crock-pot combine all ingredients and stir well to mix in spices.
  2. Cover crock-pot and cook low for 6-8 hours; giving it a stir every hour or two to prevent sticking.
  3. The pumpkin butter will thicken as it cooks. If you are using fresh pumpkin puree you may need to cook it longer as there is usually more water content in fresh pumpkin puree than there is in canned.
  4. Finished pumpkin butter will mound up on the spoon when done.
Recipe Notes

***Important! – The USDA does not recommend canning your own pumpkin butter, however many home cooks have been processing their own homemade pumpkin butter for years and putting it up in jars. I processed my own in jars for 45 minutes in a hot water bath and am planning on keeping them in the freezer just to be safe. If you are not into canning then just store in the freezer or fridge.
