an easy recipe for making pumpkin butter from scratch in a crockpot overnight
First, using a good knife, cut open each pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and guts. Remove the outer rind and cut into small cubes.
In a crock pot combine the fresh pumpkin cubes, sugar, apple juice, vanilla extract and spices.
Then set to cook on low for eight hours.
Once the mixture is done cooking, the pumpkin pieces should be very soft. Use an immersion blender to puree the mixture.
Save unused pumpkin butter in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
