Make Homemade Pumpkin Butter in the Crock Pot

Learn how to make Pumpkin Butter in your Crock Pot! It has the perfect blend of fall spices! From The Love Nerds {http://thelovenerds.com}

I have discovered this Fall season that my husband and I are the only ones in my immediate family that like pumpkin.  With that said, it would be an understatement that I did not grow up on pumpkin anything. My first introduction to pumpkin? Seasoned and roasted pumpkin seeds, followed by the glorious pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. I don’t really do Starbucks much anymore, but I still have to go every year for one of those babies. They made me love pumpkin so much that I became the crazy woman that buys a huge can of pumpkin so I can make three different pumpkin recipes in the same day. Yup – THREE!

Plus, since my homemade apple butter was such a hit, I thought you might like to give this crock pot pumpkin butter recipe a try as well.

One of my pumpkin day recipes was this pumpkin butter. Pumpkin butter has a fabulous dark caramelized color with a sweet and spicy flavor. The recipe can definitely be made using a whole pumpkin from scratch, but that – to be truly honest with all of you – is too hard for me. I love homemade but I have my weird, lazy limits. Roasting a whole pumpkin in my oven is just one of those limits. (Secret – my husband and I don’t even carve pumpkins; we think it is just too messy in an apartment.)

Crock Pot Pumpkin Butter
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of cooked, pureed pumpkin (if you buy a pan, make sure it is NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar (I did not pack the brown sugar for this recipe)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in crock-pot and stir to mix well.
  2. Cook on Low for 4 hours, stirring at least once an hour; you don't want it to burn on the sides. The mixture will thicken as it cooks and turns a dark caramelized color.
  3. After it's done, either go through the canning process (which I have never tried) or make sure to keep cold and refrigerate.

    Oh yum! I love apple butter, but I’ve never even thought of making pumpkin butter… and the fact that it’s made in the crock pot makes it even more appealing! Pinning to try after we go to the pumpkin patch!
