Pumpkin Butter

I got a small batch of pumpkin butter going this morning after Kathy and Kaylee were out the door.

Crock-pot pumpkin butter

6 cups cooked and pureed pumpkin (use canned if that is all you have)

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup lemon juice
Put in your crock-pot and cook 6 to 8 hours or until it is as thick as you want.
Freeze in small containers or pressure can in small jars to hand out as gifts. If you prefer you can make this half apple puree and half pumpkin.

They have pushed the cold front up to coming in tomorrow now.  This morning it rained then turned to snow and now that is melting. Lol all I had to do is wait 5 minutes, now is is snowing to beat the band.

I got the Christmas cards here in front of me and am going to try and get them made out today.
