"Went to clean my pantry and found a plethora of pumpkin on my hands. Decided to make this pumpkin butter. easy, quick, and so full of warm comforting fall flavor. Have been enjoying it in the mornings with scones or toast. And, have been adding it to things I've been making in the kitchen as well - made a Pumpkin Rice Pudding that was phenomenal. Thanks for another winner, TOH!"

We receive many questions about preserving pumpkins this time of year. Home canning is not recommended for pumpkin butter or any mashed or pureed pumpkin or winter squash, but we do have directions for canning cubed pumpkin. Pumpkin puree can be frozen or made into a spicy pumpkin leather."
