    "THE BEST"

    Dorothy DiPaolo from NC

    I made the pumpkin butter yesterday. I tasted it this morning, putting several spoon fulls over my steel cut oats cereal, along with sauted apples. WOW, delicious, so good, easy to make. I'm planning on making this again this week to give to friends and family as gifts.

    Super easy and delicious!!

    Kellie Wyatt from

    I've been making apple butter for years and I wanted to try pumpkin butter this year. This recipe sounded quick and easy so I went with it. Glad I did. My husband and all three of my children love it! The only thing I did differently is add about 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg. This recipe has already been added to my favorites!

    Pumpkin Butter

    Carolyn Walley from SAINT PETERSBURG, FL

    This was the best. I made this with an extra can of pumpkin I had in the cupboard. I always buy extra when it is on sale. My husband and I had this with cottage cheese. We thought apple butter and cottage cheese was great but I don't think I will go back to apple butter again. I can wait to make some more of this. I sent this recipe to one of my daughters. Can't wait to hear what she has to say. Hey People Try the cottage cheese with the pumpkin butter. It is great healthy eating.

    HEALTHY Pumpkin Butter

    Shirley McCurry from JOHNSON CITY, TN

    My son is not eating ANY sugar, so I made this for him using 1 cup of Zylitol instead of the brown sugar, left out the honey, and he can't get enough of it! Can't get any healthier than that. Zylitol is great for diabetics, dieters, or anyone concerned about their teeth, as this actually cleans them.
