Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter


Pumpkin goodness, caramelized in a slow cooker and smooth like butter.

Pumpkin Spice season is well underway and we still have a two months of it and I love it.  Every time I go to the store I find isles of pumpkin spice everything like coffee, cookies, yoghurt, ice cream, coffee creamer, even gum. 

But I haven't seen Pumpkin Butter, I only seen it at a country store. If you live in the south you may know what I'm talking about.



I'm going use this Pumpkin Butter for many recipes in the up coming months, so keep an eye out for them.
