This pumpkin butter is an excellent hostess present, and is a wonderful spread for toast and muffins. It can also be used to make a spectacular holiday dessert, Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake.

I made a double batch of this tonight and it was simple and delicious. I did, however, add about double the amount of apple cider. The recipe says to cook and allow to THICKEN, but I felt it was too thick before I even began to cook it. I desired my pumpkin butter to end up about the consistency of apple butter, which is why I added the extra liquid. Just adjust your consistency according to your liking and it will turn out perfectly. I had it on buttered toast and it was divine and perfect for Fall. I have canned it (6 full pint jars with a double recipe) and will be decorating the jars with fabric, labels, and raffia tomorrow for gifts.

Apparently there are questions if pumpkin butter is safe to home can. Check out the page from the University of Georgia Extension Office.

Yummy recipe! Easy to make, but requires a little canning know-how. Mixture is thick so cooking is very splattery. I recommend stirring nearly constantly. Also, I found it very helpful to stir and mix with a wire whisk instead of a spoon.
