Ingredients

  • 2 cups of pumpkin puree (I used fresh pumpkin)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of water

If you are using fresh pumpkin: Chop it into small pieces and bake at 350 F until soft. Mash the soft pumpkin.

Place the pumpkin pure in a medium pot and pour the water. Add sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix everything and cook until it boils stirring it occasionally. Taste and adjust ingredients to your liking.

Place the mixture in a blender and blend it until smooth.

Thoughts

I had a pumpkin for decoration outside my house, and as Halloween passed, I didn’t want to throw it away. I always bought pumpkin butter at Trader Joe’s, but I decided to give it a try myself this year. It turned out to be so simple and healthier than store bought of course.

It is a great way to start my day eating it on toast each morning. I will definitely be making this in the future again.

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy!

  1. Fabulous creation. Plus, look at you, Ms. Efficiency, putting old Halloween decorations to good (and delicious) use!

    Major props also for using a real pumpkin. The last time I made pumpkin soup, I had to bring in tools from the workshop, so I know how much work it must’ve been.

    Reading what the effort created, though, great job!
