Pumpkin Butter

This recipe was given to me by a friend and again, although I have not tasted it, I have heard many people talk about how wonderful this recipe is, so I thought I would share it...plus it makes a great gift...

Pumpkin Butter

8 cups Pumpkin Puree (can use canned puree)
4 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon (can use 2 teaspoons if you like more cinnamon flavor)
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
juice of 4 lemons (can use ReaLemon lemon juice - 6 Tablespoons)

Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Mix all ingredients in your crockpot and cook on HIGH until it becomes thick and smooth (about 2 hours)...depending on how hot your crock pot gets, you might want to check this after an hour.

Pour pumpkin butter into clean and sterilized pint jars or jelly jars and seal. These make great little gifts. They will keep in the refrigerator for about a week and it freezes well.

Happy Slow Cooking! Enjoy and Hugs...
