2 Tbls sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 teas allspice
1/4 teas ginger
1/4 teas cloves (ground)
1/4 teas nutmeg
1/2 teas cinnamon
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree

1. In a large bowl,combine all ingredients except pumpkin puree
2.Mix well until all ingredients are totally incorporated
3.Add pumpkin puree and mix well until smooth
4.Refrigerate pumpkin butter.It can also be frozen.

1 (29 oz)can canned pumpkin puree
3/4 cup apple juice
2 teas ground ginger
1/2 teas ground cloves
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 teas. ground cinnamon
1 teas ground nutmeg (Grinding your own cinnamon and nutmeg makes a huge difference)

Bring mixture to a boil.Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes until thickened,stir frequently.

Spoon hot pumpkin mixture into hot jars, filling to within 1/4 inch from top.
