Pumpkin season is upon us and what better way to start it off than with some smooth and delicious pumpkin butter?
Making pumpkin butter in the crock pot is magnificently easy. You simply throw all the ingredients in, turn it on and go. You could simply cook it and call it a day, in which case you’re end product will have a texture much like pureed pumpkin, or you can take a few extra minutes and blend it up with an immersion blender to give it a smoother consistency.
To me, the extra few minutes are well worth it because I like the smoother consistency (which is how Trader Joe’s brand is, and theirs is my favorite store-bought variety), but do whatever you prefer! Either way, you’ll end up with a delicious pumpkin butter that tastes great on toast, in oatmeal, straight from the jar or however you want to eat it.
