Pumpkin Pie Butter
Prep time

This is a traditional, sweet fruit butter with warm pie spices. If you're looking for a less sweet pumpkin pie butter, you can cut the sugar by up to half, or use coconut sugar. And for a deeper flavor, substitute part of the sugar with brown sugar.
Serves: about 4 to 5 cups
  1. Put the pumpkin, sugar, apple juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt in a large saucepan and stir until smooth.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, for 30 minutes, or until thickened.
  3. Cool and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, or freeze to enjoy at a later date.
*The salt is technically optional, but it helps to bring out the sweetness and spice.
