Crock Pot Pumpkin Butter  

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough

Pumpkin baking season is about to make its exit – before we know it, we’ll be elbow-deep in winter root vegetables until the first thaw (a frightening thought, I know).


But before we get all Debbie Downer, let’s not forget that there are ways of prolonging the yummy flavors of fall to keep us (and our taste buds) happy all winter long.

Take this Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter, for example. It’s unbelievably easy to make, requires only a few simple ingredients and can be canned or frozen and saved for when you need a pumpkin fix on a chilly day. Can’t wait until then? It also would make a great addition to those Pillsbury crescent rolls you’re thinking about serving on Thanksgiving. Just saying.

Here’s how the magic happens:

Ingredients for Crock Pot Pumpkin Butter

First, get your main cast ready. There are the spices, some sugar and apple juice, and of course, pumpkin.

Pour pumpkin into crock pot

 

Next, heat up your slow cooker and get ready for the hardest part of the entire recipe. Ready? First, pour your pumpkin into the slow cooker.

Then, (cue the song) pour some sugar on iiiiiit.

Then add the juice

Then, add the juice…

Then add the spices

And the spices.

Mix it all together

Mix it all together, and…

Whew. That was tough, huh? Thank goodness it only gets easier from here.

Wait about five hours for your slow cooker to do its thing, stirring the pumpkin mixture occasionally so it doesn’t burn around the edges.

In the meantime, get the supporting cast ready.

Pumpkin butter is done when it sticks to a spoon upside down

You’ll know the pumpkin butter is done when a spoonful sticks to the spoon when turned upside down.

 

Scoop the butter into a mason jar and let cool in the refrigerator completely.

There you have it – the perfect way to enjoy pumpkin all winter long!
