I'm home-making these. I've also invented a new method to easily turn a slingshot into a slingbow.

Uncle Dan’s Pumpkin Butter


• 6 Pint Cans Pumpkin Puree
• 6 Cups Apple Juice
• 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
• 1 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
• ½ Teaspoon Allspice
• ½ Teaspoon Nutmeg
• 6 Cups Sugar

Yields 10 to 12 Pint Jars
Recipe and Directions:

Step 1 - Fill the crock pot
Fill the crock pot with pumpkin puree, apple juice, spices and sugar

Step 2 - Cook the Pumpkin butter
Set the crock pot on low heat.
Cover it loosely or use a large pot splatter-guard. It will spatter as it boils slowly. You don't want to seal it tightly because you want the steam to escape so it can reduce in volume and thicken.
Leave it to cook for 8 – 10 hours. How long depends on the size and power of your crockpot, and how thick you like it. Stir it occasionally. I let mine go overnight. It will reduce in volume by about one third to one half overnight.

Step 3 – Prepare Jars and Lids

Step 4 - Blend the pumpkin butter (optional)
If you want a smooth, creamy texture use a hand-held drink blender. You can also put it into a regular blender, but if you are going to do that, you might want to blend the pumpkin sauce before you put it in the crock pot (it will be much thicker and too hot afterwards and won't move in a regular blender).


• Too thick? if the pumpkin butter cooks down too much or is too thick for your liking, just add a little bit of apple juice and blend it in.
• Not thick enough? Just let it cook some more, with the lid off so the steam can escape!

Dan, my man. That pumpkin butter looks frickin' awesome. Just reading it, I can almost smell it cooking.
My 3 year old niece goes nuts for the stuff. It's like pumpkin pie on bread.
