Ingredients:

1. Large pumpkin

2. 1/4 cup Olive oil

3. 1/4 cup Citrus pectin

4. 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

5. 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg

6. 1 teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice

7. 1 cup Brown sugar

8. Mason jars of your choice

 

How to make:

Cut the pumpkin in half and scrape seeds out. Cut the pumpkin into 8-10 big pieces. Take olive oil and lightly brush the edges of the pumpkin. Wrap pumpkin slices in aluminum foil and bake for 2 hours at 350 degrees. Let cool.

Then, scrape pumpkin out of shell, making sure to not include the skin. Then add 2 cups of the pumpkin along with the citrus pectin, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar into a mixer. Repeat for the amount of pumpkin that you have. Blend until mostly smooth. Then, take a sauce pan with a dash of olive oil, add pumpkin mixture, and simmer on low heat to reduce. About 1 hour. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. When ready, put into mason jars and seal. To seal containers, put containers into warm water and let it come to a boil. Then turn off heat, drain, and cool. When you hear a pop, you know they are sealed. Enjoy!

I love this recipe and use the homemade pumpkin butter all the time. I love to use it on toast, apples, bagels, etc. It's so good! I hope you love it too!
