Maple Pumpkin Butter
Maple syrup and pumpkin combine to make this a richly flavored butter that is simple to prepare. You may want to make double, as it tends to disappear quickly! The butter would also make a delicious tart filling.
List of Ingredients
2 cups pureed, cooked pumpkin (1 can)
1/4 cup plus 2 TBSP. pure Grade A maple syrup
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Pinch of mace
1/2 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in a 2 quart heavy bottomed sauce pan. Cook on lowest heat, stirring often, until very thick and no excess liquid remains, about 30 minutes. Cool and refrigerate for up to 1 month. Makes approx. 2 cups.
