Pumpkin Butter - 30 Days 30 Recipes - Day 21
Ok, I guess I'm on a pumpkin kick. And my family is still not a fan of it! My first impression was that this recipe was going to be WAY too sweet. Then I put it on an english muffin and had a bite. It's delicious! I can imagine it being good on a fresh homemade roll or maybe a biscuit.
I had to use canned pumpkin because pumpkins are not in season right now. Besides, it's so much easier and there are no added ingredients in the can, just pumpkin.
Lastly, the amount of sugar seemed high to me for a "diet recipe", but in light of the small serving size the amount was just right. I will probably be eating this pumpkin butter for a while because I'll be the only one eating it, but that's OK. It's so tasty! This recipe was very easy and made me long for the days of autumn.
