Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14.5 ounce) pure pumpkin
  • ¼ cup apple cider
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½-2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice see note below**

Instructions

  • Add the pumpkin, apple cider, white sugar, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice to a slow cooker. Stir well.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or on high for 2-3 hours until butter has reached your desired consistency, stirring every hour.
  • Pour butter into a mason jar (or other airtight container) and allow to cool completely. Store in the refrigerator.

Notes

**Another reader suggested that 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice was too strong in this recipe. You may want to start with 1/2 tablespoon and then increase from there, depending on your tastes.
Pumpkin butter can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one month.
