Pumpkin Butter Made From Scratch In Your Crock Pot
If you were lucky enough to grow up in a place with four real seasons, you're probably intimately familiar with some of the wonderful fall treats that are rapidly appearing around the country as we speak. One of the most classic of these seasonal sensations is pumpkin butter. Along with its close cousin apple butter, this decadent, sweet spread is a perennial favorite for canning. It also makes a fantastic filling for baked goods, but it's always been such a labor-intensive job to make even a little.
Well, thanks to Jules Shepard at eHow Food, all that work can be done by your slow cooker instead, leaving you plenty more free time and an effortless batch of this singular preserve.
