Naturally Sweetened Pumpkin Butter

February 1, 2015

Author Notes: This delicious pumpkin butter is thick and velvety. I use all the traditional spices that grace your palate with that familiar Fall taste. As the pumpkin butter simmers, it fills the room with an intoxicating aroma. Apple juice and maple syrup add subtle sweetness while not overwhelming your taste buds. Serve it on toast, waffles, ice cream, yogurt or, my new favorite, dip in a freshly-cut apple slice.Madeline
