This is perfect for those beautiful Autumn days.

Our slow cooker pumpkin butter is the perfect option for cool, Fall mornings!

It took us four attempts to get this right, but the effort was well worth it! This yummy, naturally sweetened, Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter, is the perfect addition to your Autumn days. After all, nothing says “Autumn” more than the rich, delicious flavor of pumpkin, right? People love it in coffee, desserts, pasta sauces, and smoothies, and now you can enjoy it on toast or biscuits too!

The Nutritional Power of Pumpkin

Enjoy this pumpkin butter as a topping on your morning toast.

Pumpkin dishes are not only filled with fall flavor but they also offer some important nutrients. Pumpkins get their orange color from beta-carotene — the same nutrient that makes carrots one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat. When consumed, beta-carotene converts to Vitamin A which supports eye and skin health, boosts the immune system, and more!

Pumpkin is packed with Vitamin C and Potassium too, both of which are good for the heart! Just like its various squash counterparts, it is a great food to eat when you are watching your weight as it is super low calorie. Plus, it’s naturally sweet, so you can satisfy your sweet tooth without overdoing it with sugar.

An Easy and Convenient Condiment

This super easy condiment is a cinch to make but tastes like it took hours!

Even better, our pumpkin butter is cooked in a slow cooker, which means it is easy and convenient to whip up a fresh batch. Slow cooker recipes let you “set it and forget it.” Just mix up the ingredients and let the slow cooker do its work. In a few hours, you’ll have a creamy, sweet batch of pumpkin butter, ready to enjoy!

  1. Looks like a great recipe! If I decided to can this, I wonder how long I would process it in a water bath? And how much does this recipe make?

  2. I would like to make this to give as teacher/family gifts for Thanksgiving. Can the recipe be doubled/tripled so that I only have to make one big batch or is it better to do one batch at a time? Thanks!

  3. Could you make this without the syrup and honey? I'm looking for a pumpkin butter recipe only sweetened with unsweetened apple juice. I make my apple butter just using unsweetened apple juice.

    1. Carole, Yes you could. You could reduce apple juice over medium low heat until some of the liquid evaporates out and use the syrup too.

  4. For those questioning the canning of product, canning pumpkin is highly discouraged. The limited acidity makes for the perfect environment for deadly toxins. Freezing pumpkin butter is best.
