EASY SLOW COOKER PUMPKIN BUTTER!

My husband, Liam and I are the only ones in my immediate family that like pumpkin. It would be an understatement if I were to say that I did not grow up on pumpkin anything.

My first introduction to pumpkin? Seasoned and roasted pumpkin seeds in middle school, followed by the glorious pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks.

They made me love pumpkin so much that I became the crazy woman that buys huge cans of pumpkin so I can make a ton of pumpkin recipes all fall long – and often times, all year long!

My homemade apple butter has always been such a hit with my family and with all of you that I thought making a slow cooker pumpkin butter recipe might go over well, too!

The best part is that this recipe is even simpler and faster to make than my apple butter recipe because I start with easy canned pumpkin puree.

However, you can always start with fresh pumpkin if you desire and cook it down like you do with apples. That is way too much work for me, though!

Pumpkin butter has a fabulous dark caramelized color with a sweet and spicy flavor. It’s thick, flavorful and makes the house smell amazing!

HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER PUMPKIN BUTTER:

Making pumpkin butter is one of the simplest slow cooker recipes! You add everything into the slow cooker, stir well and then just let it cook.

Stir occasionally to check in on how it’s cooking and ensure it doesn’t scorch on the sides. Easy peasy!

When done, you can add to mason jars and refrigerate for at least a month or you can go through the canning process to make it last longer.

We never manage to keep it around for long since we use it so often for breakfast and recipes.

    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!
