    This is a spinoff of scrambledegg's crockpot apple butter!

    Filled my crockpot with chunks of pumpkin

    5 cups of sugar

    2 Tbs. pumpkin pie spice

    Cooked with lid on for 10 hours on high.

    Took lid off and used my hand blender to smush it together.

    Put in canning jars and hot water bathed them for 15 min.[​IMG]

    Here's some info that I came accross that makes me (a newby to canning) Waaay to scared to can anything pumpkin:

    You can can cubed pumpkin, but not the puree. Pumpkin puree is too thick to ensure that all possible spores have been destroyed.
