Homemade Pumpkin Butter That Goes With Everything

Ingredients

  1. 4 cups pumpkin puree (yielded from 2 small 4-6″ baking pumpkins)
  2. 1/4 cup apple cider
  3. 2 tsp cinnamon
  4. 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  5. 1 tsp stevia or agave (to taste)

Directions

To Roast the Pumpkin

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Wash the exterior of the pumpkins, cut them in half, and remove the seeds and stringy stuff (save seeds for later baking).
  • Lay the pumpkin cut side down on a baking sheet covered in tin foil (spray the foil with olive oil or wipe it with a dab of coconut oil on a paper towel). Place into the oven and bake for 1-1/2 hours. Remove from oven and allow them to cool so that you can handle them.

Pumpkin Butter Instructions

  • Scoop out the roasted pumpkin and place 4 cups into mixing bowl or stand mixer. Add the apple cider, spices, and stevia and mix until incorporated.
  • Place into a medium size sauce pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for another 30 minutes, stirring often.
  • Mixture will thicken and reduce. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Store in an airtight container in the frig (or you may can it, if you are into canning). Serve over waffles, pancakes, bread, oatmeal, yogurt, frozen yogurt!
