I did not have very good luck with this recipe. I thought the apple overpowered the pumpkin. I kept adding spices and pumpkin until it didn't taste as much like applesauce. If I attempt pumpkin butter again I will try a recipe that doesn't call for as much applesause/apple juice. Read More

I added a shake or two more of cinnamon than the recipe called for. Instead of doing on the stove I brought to boil and put in a crock pot on high for 4 hours. Worked wonderfully. Read More

Not too sweet (which some may dislike). Simple to make and pumpkin lovers will enjoy it. Read More

If you use the standard "halloween" pumpkin use LOTS of spice! It's pretty bland.... Read More

What made this recipe different from the others was the use of BROWN sugar instead of white. I did it in a slow cooker on low overnight. So good. Read More

Great recipe. I had about 2.5 cups of fresh "pie pumpkin" and used that with the applesauce. I liked it a little more pumpkin-y than the original recipe. The other change I made was that I did not add the spice. My son has some food allergies and the pumpkin butter was for him. We used the final product in smoothies on toast and in pumpkin muffins.

This turned out very good - but wish it was a little more pumpkin tasting -- I agree with the apple taste overpowering the pumpkin -- I doubled the entire recipe -but only added 3/4 C of Apple Juice and 3/4 C water -and extra pumpkin pie spice. Next time I will substitue all of the apple juice with water -- WARNING - watch out -- this stuff "erupts" like Mt. Vesuvius -even when on the lowest my stove's burner will go! - it is like it is sending hot pumpkin lava into the air one burp at a time -- I think I will try the crock pot method next time! - Can't wait to serve it on our Christmas Brunch buffet!
