Pumpkin Butter (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by Dee514

This recipe was posted in answer to a message board request. It is from an old cookbook I have (the cover is missing, so I can't tell you which one). Since I don't own a crock pot, I haven't tried it, therefore the "cook time" is an estimate on my part (it was not specified in the recipe).

Canning alert, people! I read a few reviews that said you canned this great pumpkin butter, but warning -- you shouldn't. Here is the article: http://www.foodinjars.com/2010/10/canning-101-why-pumpkin-butter-cant-be-canned/. But it freezes and stores in fridge very well and lasts a long time.
