I have a wonderful idea for a holiday gift for you! It's easy, it's inexpensive, and it's delish! It's apple pumpkin butter!!!!!
Here is the simplest gift you will ever make (besides those slice and bake Pillsbury cookies).
Here are my ingredients. The only ingredient not pictured is brown sugar. You will pour the entire applesauce container, both cans of pumpkin, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 tsp nutmeg, and 1 Tbl cinnamon into a large pot.
Bring to a boil, then immediately reduce to medium/ low heat. Let simmer for about 1 hour, then spoon into mason jars, and tie with a cute tag, or ribbon.
These will stay fresh in the fridge for about 2 weeks. They make great hostess gifts, gifts for neighbors, gifts for coworkers, gifts for teachers, or they make a scrumptious snack for you! It is so good on bagels, toast, waffles, pancakes, or with a spoon straight out of the jar...shhhhhhh.......
Add, subtract, or adjust the amounts of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar to your taste. I was able to get 8 jars of the pumpkin butter from my recipe. Enjoy!
