    I have a friend who bought some pumpkin butter as a gift for his mother-in-law and claims she absolutely adores it.

    I'm going to save this recipe and give it a try. Thanks for sharing !!!

    Sounds delicious. I wanted to make apple butter and pumpkin butter this fall but with the drought we suffered in this area the cushaw pumpkins were scarce and the apples were saddly lacking. I only got a couple dozen off my own trees (thanks to snow 2 days before Easter that killed most of the aple blossoms).
