How to Make Apple Pumpkin Butter - Canning Recipe

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the applesauce and pumpkin puree in a large pot. Bring to a gentle simmer and then reduce the heat. Cook over low heat for at least 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes to prevent sticking. If the butter begins to spurt out of the pot, use a splatter shield to keep things neat.
  2. After the first hour of cooking, stir the sugar, lemon juice and spices into the butter. Stir and continue to cook over low heat, until the butter is thick and spreadable, about 30 to 45 minutes.
  3. When the butter is done, remove it from heat and ladle into freezer-safe jars. Butter can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 year.
