Pumpkin Butter

Pumpkin Butter | Cooking on the Front Burner

Today's recipe is a first for me - I have not made any type of 'butters' in my culinary life nor have I ever tried one.  I have been intrigued and decided since it is getting to pumpkin season, I would give a try with this Pumpkin Butter recipe.  I even tried it - well, I assume you know that I do try all my recipes.  In fact, while I was editing these pictures, I was munching on an english muffin with this tasty spread!  I wanted to go back for seconds!

I really loved how creamy this was and easy to make.  It will last about 2-3 weeks in your refrigerator but I doubt ours will last that long.  I've heard it can also be frozen.

While I did enjoy this on an english muffin, it also goes well on toast or breakfast bread - I even think it would go well with pumpkin bread - a double dose of goodness!
