Introduction: Pumpkin Butter

Tis the season to be roll polly (enter ALL the holiday treats), and there's no tastier way to get there than with Pumpkin Butter. Butter on it's own is hard enough to resist, add pumpkin, honey, and other delicious-ness and forgettaboutit.

Let's get started.

Step 1: Recipe

1 stick of room temperature butter (8 tbsp or 4 oz)*
1/4 cup honey (local if possible)
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt (if using unsalted butter)

*try making your own butter (it's SUPER easy) with my instructable:

https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-Butter/

Tools:

hand mixer
mixing bowl
measuring spoons
spatula

Step 2: 'Making It' Work

Put all the ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl and blend with a hand mixer (or a fork and lots of elbow grease) until smooth and fluffy.

Step 3: Get to Eatin'

Once mixed, the butter is ready to enjoy right away. (YUMMM!) Add it to your favorite (warm) baked good, to mashed sweet potatoes, or even your coffee!

If you have any left over (meaning unlike me you have will power), it can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for 6-9 months.

Happy (full figured) fall everyone!

Thanks for sharing.

In the past I've made similar things with butter and rosehip pulp, which is very enjoyable on freshly baked bread. I can imagine this is similar fresh and delicious.

Pumpkin Spice was unknown to me, but according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, it consists of the following ingredients mixed in a jar:


  • 1/3 cup ground cinnamon.
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger.
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg or mace.
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cloves.
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground allspice.

Thanks for adding the pumpkin spice recipe fsteff! I forget that not everyone would know what that is or have access to it. : )

You are absolutely welcome.
Thank you for bringing my attention to it.

Don't be silly!! Pumpkin is a vegetable. Spices are bark (cinnamon) seeds (cloves) and roots (ginger). Vanilla is a bean. The bread is made from wheat (a grain, of course), yeast (also a plant) and sugar, which is made either from beets or from the stem of yet another plant (the sugar cane). With a little added protein in the form of butter... It's practically a salad!!

BTW a stick of butter is 1/4 lb. or half a cup. A pound of butter in the US typically comes divided into 4 'sticks'

Haha, you're right bizzycrafter, it's pretty much salad. : )

Made this over the weekend and it is WONDERFUL. Very light and fluffy. Can't wait to give jars as gifts.

Thanks Ashley! I'm so glad you liked it.

Sounds great

but

1 stick = ? oz.? gr?

couldn't determine from the photos.

Thanks

looks like 250 grams from the photo

based on enlarging the picture, it would be a standard American weight. The picture shows 8 tablespoons marked on the wrapper. This would equate to 4 ounces or 113.4 grams. My best guess is this may be unsalted butter, but could not confirm this on the wrapper.
