pumpkin spiced butter

pumpkin spiced butterwhy buy it when you can make it
A couple years ago I bought a maple pumpkin butter from Stonewall Kitchen (which is really good and definitely recommend it) and was considering getting it again. But my inner foodie said “why buy it when you can make it?”. So I did {always listen to your inner foodie}. The ingredient list looks extensive but it’s really meant to give the pumpkin purée a nice flavor.

You can use the pumpkin butter on crackers, in oatmeal, on a bagel or even to give basic recipes a fall twist (like meatloaf)!
ingredients
16 oz can of pumpkin puree
3 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup
½ of tsp of maple extract
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ cup of brown sugar
a pinch of sea salt

instructions
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat until all ingredients are well incorporated. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Allow to cool.
