With fall coming in fast this year I thought I’d share a favorite of mine! Pumpkin-Apple Butter! We always go apple picking so I have a ton of apple recipes from apple bread to apple sauce and more! Plus I needed something to do with the pumpkin we carve!
I don’t remember where I got this recipe I’ve had it for a few years now but we love it!
1/2 cup golden raisins
3/4 cup apple juice or cider
2 cups pureed pumpkin or other winter squash
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 cup natural apple sauce
1/4 cup agave nectar (or other liquid sweetener such as maple syrup or molasses)
1/4 cup sugar ( to taste)
Put the raisins in a medium-sized saucepan, and pour the apple juice over them. Heat on low until raisins plump up, adding water if they get dry. When they are plump, puree the raisins in the juice. (You may need to add a little water to do this, I used a hand blender and blended the pumpkin along with the raisins.)
Return the pureed raisins to the pan and add all remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about an hour. Makes about 3 cups.
