Treat yourself, today, to this homemade Pumpkin Butter that is rich and creamy and incredibly delicious. Made on the stovetop with 7 simple pantry ingredients in 20 to 25 minutes. It's a simple way to celebrate the best of fall. 


  • 28 ounce can pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch of salt


  1. Combine pumpkin, apple juice, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, ginger and a pinch of salt in a large saucepan; stir well.
  2. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, or until thickened. I like to bring the pumpkin butter to a boil on medium-high heat and reduce the heat to low for cooking. But use levels that work on your stove. Stir the pumpkin butter frequently as it cooks.
  3. Once cooled completely, transfer the butter to a glass refrigerator container and store for up to 2 weeks. Or you can freeze the pumpkin butter for 1 month.
  4. Perfect for holiday hostess gifts, spread on fall favorites like waffles, pancakes, toast, pumpkin bread, banana bread or oatmeal. Or used in cheesecakes and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
