    nsomniak6's Note:

    This spiced "butter" is delectable smeared across a slice of buttered toast or any hot bread, atop pancakes and waffles in place of syrup. You can even put a dollop on top of a scoop of rich vanilla ice cream. Recipe from Cooks Recipes.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Simmer the orange zest in 2 cups water in a saucepan for 10 minutes, then drain it and mince it to a fine pulp.
    2. 2
      Measure out 1 tablespoon and reserve. Combine in a heavy-bottomed stainless-steel or other nonreactive saucepan, the pumpkin and water (if using canned) orange zest, sugar, orange juice, lemon juice, cinnamon, salt, allspice, ginger and cloves.
    3. 3
      B30ring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly; lower the heat and simmer the mixture, stirring it very often with a wooden spatula, until it has become very thick, about 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Sample the butter and add a little more of any of all of the spices, if you like (although flavors will blossom in storage).
    5. 5
      Add more sweetening if your taste buds request it.
    6. 6
      Stir in the nuts and continue to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.
    7. 7
      Ladle the boiling-hot pumpkin butter into clean, hot half-pint canning jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Seal the jars with new 2 piece canning lids according to manufacturer's instructions.
    8. 8
      Process the jars for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath. Cool, label, and store for up to a year in a cool cupboard.

      I used fresh pumpkin, but followed the recipe closely, including the lemon and orange--this kicks up the pumpkin a bit and helps with preserving it too. I cooked the butter for some time, until it got a rich color and quite thick. It is different than apple butter, but a welcome addition to a fall breakfast. Also used it twice to make the pumpkin squares #263086.
