It's Pumpkin Time !

Time for the kids to carve some scary pumpkins again.
you know what that means to me ?
Some good pumpkin butter,
just like apple butter, and easy to make

After the kids clean the guts and seed out of the pumpkins, take a spoon and scrape the inner walls to get as much meat as you can. This will not only reward you with precious butter, but make the carving easy for the kids. The recipe has never been written for me, but I have used 1/2 cup cider to 1 cup pumpkin in a crock pot on low for 10 hours/overnight. I had 5 cups of pumpkin when I was done scraping.
I add cinnamon and allspice to taste, and with this batch, I did add 1/4 cup splenda

Nothing better on a piece of toast in the morning, and good with peanut butter too !

Making pumpkin butter and roasting the seeds are a great way to make use of everything in the pumpkin.
