Pumpkin Apple Butter
You know it’s September so it’s all about apples and pumpkins around here and what better than combining the two? I am an apple butter girl-I prefer it over jam or jelly any day. I got to thinking when making my Pumpkin Pie Dip the other day that I should try to add some pumpkin to my favorite apple butter recipe.
Stovetop Pumpkin Apple Butter
I don’t do the crockpot method of apple butter making that I see all over Pinterest-I’m the impatient sort when it comes to getting my apple butter fix-I make mine in less than an hour and I promise it’s every bit as delectable as long-cooking versions. Add pumpkin to the mix and this is a fall favorite!
Pumpkin Apple Butter Ingredients

Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. After allowing to cool for 15 minutes, pour into a food processor and blend until smooth. It’s that easy!
I like to eat this pumpkin apple butter on toast, biscuits, or by dunking the cinnamon sugar chips I shared with you in my post on Pumpkin Pie Dip!
