Used canned pumpkin for making this recipe & divided the resulting butter among 5 small jars, 2 to keep & 3 to give as gifts for my dinner suests! Very tasty stuff & something of a unique gift! I found that it went especially well as a spread on dense, winter wheat bread! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC cooking game]
