Pumpkin Butter--With Pancakes!

I spread this delicious stuff on my whole wheat pancakes this morning instead of the usual applesauce.  YUMMY!  I've tried pumpkin pancake and pumpkin waffle recipes before and have yet to be wowed by any of them.  But with this pumpkin butter, you can turn your ordinary pancake/waffle recipe into pumpkin deliciousness easily!  So if you have access to a Trader Joe's pick up some of this and give it a try!

And if you want to make your own...


1 - 29 oz can pureed pumpkin
3/4 cup apple cider
1/2 c. honey
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
dash of salt
brown sugar to taste (optional)

Combine all ingredients except brown sugar in a slow cooker.   Cook on HI 3 hours propping the lid open with a cinnamon stick to let steam out for mixture to thicken and for a natural home potpourri.  Add additional sugar if desired 1/4 c. at a time.  Keep in fridge or freeze.  Makes 3 cups.
