Remember that homemade pumpkin puree I posted last week? Well here is another amazing dish you can make with that puree.  Homemade pumpkin butter. It’s sweet, full of autumn spices and utterly delicious! I enjoy eating it on fresh muffins, scones, bagels….ok, pretty much anything bread like. It’s also equally delicious eaten by the spoonful. Don’t judge me. I know I’m not the only one.
