With gift season quickly approaching, Marie has provided this incredibly easy recipe for Pumpkin Butter that is sure to stand out in the sea of jarred food gifts. It should be illegal how simple this is!
For each jar you plan to pack, you will need: pumpkin puree, brown sugar, apple juice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, allspice, and lemon juice.
In a saucepan, pour in the pumpkin, brown sugar, apple juice …
Vanilla extract …
Ground ginger …
Stir to combine ingredients. Allow mixture to come to a boil, reduce heat to low, then simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. I recommend keeping a close eye on your butter to ensure it doesn’t burn. Remove from the heat.
Stir in the lemon juice, allow to cool, then transfer to a jar. Now you have a lovely, versatile pumpkin butter to share (or not, no judgement here!). Visit Marie’s beautiful site Citron Limette for other holiday treat ideas, as well as hundreds of other creative recipes.
