Pumpkin Butter – Slow Cooker

This yummy spread is great to have on hand throughout the fall and winter season. Its sweet-savory flavor is delicious with toast and bagels, as well as on tea breads. Be sure to use a small, sweet pie pumpkin and not the large, flavorless jack-o’-lantern variety. A large orange-fleshed winter squash such as buttercup or kabocha may be used instead of a pumpkin. This butter benefits from a stirring halfway through the cooking process.

At 3, my mother read me the 19th century version byJohn Godfrey Saxe from the pages of the Childcraft volume, Storytelling and Other Poems. This volume was part of a set my parents must have purchased when […]
