A recipe for Sweet Pumpkin Butter. Sweet Pumpkin Butter. Perfect for toast! Sweet Pumpkin Butter recipe. I have never had pumpkin butter before Jenny made this. It’s one of those things where I became upset when I learned and tasted that it existed. Basically, pumpkin butter enables you to turn almost anything into pumpkin pie. Toast in the morning? Pumpkin pie toast. Biscuit? Pumpkin pie biscuit. Anything? Pumpkin pie anything. It’s awesome. I think I am in love with Jenny. Try this Sweet Pumpkin Butter please.

Pumpkin Butter
Makes 3½-4 cups

Ingredients:
1 (29 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 cup 100% apple juice (unfiltered pressed apples are best)
¾ cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
¼ cup pure maple syrup
2 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon all-spice

Directions:
1. Place all ingredients into a medium pot and place over medium heat. Stir.
2. Allow the mixture to reduce on medium to medium-low heat for 30 to 40 minute or until slightly thickened (the mixture will thicken more as it cools).
3. Transfer to sterilized jars and store until ready to use.
4. Serve over toast, muffins, scones, etc.

    This sounds amazing! Do you need to process the jars so they seal? And if so, how long?

    How long will this keep!?

    Sorry for the million questions! Thanks :)

      Hi Ashley! No worries, that’s what I’m here for! You’re actually not supposed to heat process pumpkin butter. The density of the pumpkin puree is generally too dense to heat process safely (basically, it’s difficult for the heat to find it’s way to the center of the jar). What I do recommend though is still sterilizing the jars and lids ( as you would regular canning), fill the jars and pop them in the fridge. They should hold for about 3 weeks and freeze up to 3 months. I hope this was helpful! Good luck!

    I am looking for food that will help lower my cholesterol and pumpkin is such a great option. Of course, the maple syrup and brown sugar are not great choices, but I can use sugar substitutes, right?

    Pumpkin butter is a delicious addition to pretty much EVERYTHING. I love it on toast, with cream cheese. Like a pumpkin cheesecake, for breakfast?!?!

    • Faith Bowe Not Specified Not Specified

      I was thinking the same thing! This would be great on a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a layer of this pumpkin butter! Yum!

    Hi i am planning on making your Pumpkin butter went to the store to purchase everything and noticed how Expensive the Pure maple Syrup is. Is it possible to substitute maple syrup with Pancake Syrup or something Else?
    Thanks, Tammy

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Tammy! Absolutely! I prefer pure maple syrup bc I love the flavor and consistency, but yes it can be quite expensive. The swap for pancake syrup should be just fine… I would just avoid the sugar free stuff. Hope you like the recipe :)

  27. Tammy Francis Not Specified Not Specified

    Thanks Jenny!

    One more question for you how about fixing it in the crockpot? I would love to do the crockpot method if you have one.

  28. ChicQuetta Not Specified Not Specified
