How to make Pumpkin Butter
Gather all of your ingredients:
- pumpkin puree
- apple juice
- ground ginger
- ground cloves
In a large saucepan, combine the pumpkin puree, apple juice, sugar and spices. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Use a wire whisk and stir it constantly. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 30 more minutes. Make sure to stir frequently.
If you want a smoother texture, place the butter in a blender. after it’s cooked and cooled a bit.
Store in a clean airtight container and keep it in the fridge. It will last in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
If you want more long term storage, you can seal it tightly and keep it in the freezer for 6-12 months. I recommend a plastic storage container since glass can break at extreme temperatures.
