Pumpkin Butter

Fruit butters contain no dairy. They are similar to a jam made with homemade or canned pumpkin puree, brown sugar, apple cider, cinnamon sticks and pumpkin spice. A little goes a long way when you want to add a little spiced sweetness to anything you’re eating. I love smearing some on my toast, or swirling it into my oatmeal and yogurt. A few more ways to serve it, have some on a slice of toasted Pumpkin Banana Bread or rolled in these pumpkin butter crepes.
