Pumpkin Butter

There's a whymsically wonderful little cafe in Greenwich Village, NYC called Peanut Butter & Co. It is everything peanut butter. And the peanut butter is freshly made ~ smooth (my pref!) or crunchy. And it is fun. I love grabbing lunch there every once in a while because it makes me smile... I usually always have the fluffernutter sandwich & a vanilla diet coke but they have a new item for Halloween & fall... ready for it? It's a Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Butter Sandwich. & it is scrumptious. Here's how you can make home-made pumpkin butter:

Pumpkin Butter 
(Slow Cooker Method)
adapted from:Eastern European Food
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 to 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
Combine pumpkin puree with sugar & spices, and choose one of the following cooking methods.
Slow Cooker: Place sweetened pulp in a slow cooker with lid partially off to let steam escape. Set at low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6-12 hours or overnight, or until thick enough so the butter doesn't run off a spoon when turned upside down.
