How to Make "Bourbon Cherry Pie" Pumpkin Butter

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a saucepan, take cherries, bourbon, water, brown sugar, honey/sugar, and boil on medium/high heat until sugar is totally dissolved and bourbon is cooked out to your taste level.
  • 2Place in blender and pulse for a second for a rough chop of the cherries. Pour back in saucepan.
  • 3Add the vanilla extract and amaretto. Cook on a low medium heat.
  • 4Whisk in the cinnamon and ginger.
  • 5Add canned pumpkin and butter. Continue whisking and raise the heat to a boil. This will bubble and spit, so I would put the lid on it.
  • 6Then remove lid, lower heat, and whisk in Knox Gelatin. Continue whisking until totally dissolved.
  • 7Pour into sterilized jars and follow canning water bath process.
