Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter in a serving dish

Pumpkin spice lovers will adore this easy five ingredient Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter. It’s like pumpkin pie in a jar without the guilt , then smeared on toast.  I was not introduced to this wonderful condiment until I was an adult . No, I didn’t live under a rock before then . Growing up in Southern Louisiana the food was always wonderful but our typical fall food did not include a lot of variety. My mother doesn’t like pumpkin anything so I was convinced I didn’t either . Fast forward to the adult me ..I love all pumpkin desserts . I still love my old faithful fall favorites like Pecan Tassies and Sweet potato pie but I now include Pumpkin anything in my fall food. When I discovered pumpkin butter and it was a condiment changing . I could have a taste of pumpkin pie almost everyday without actually eating pie.

Now ,you can buy pumpkin butter already made BUT you have to wait until the fall . Homemade is always better anyway and this slow cooker version is so easy you can whip some up in no time. In this recipe this is a small amount but this would make great holiday presents and hostess and teacher gifts. I recommend doubling the recipe at the least and canning it. Tie a nice little ribbon around the jar and you have an adorable homemade gift that will be much appreciated.
