Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
12 cups cubed fresh pumpkin
3 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar - (packed)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 pinch ground cloves
3 tablespoons cider vinegar

Place pumpkin in food processor and process to the smallest bits possible.
Place processed pumpkin in crockpot with sugars and cover. Cook on HIGH
setting for 4 hours.

Remove cover and add spices. Cook 4 hours more, uncovered. Add 3
tablespoons cider vinegar and continue to cook for 4 hours more,
uncovered.

Allow butter to cool a bit and then pour into food processor. Process
until pureed. Keep some out for immediate use and freeze the rest.

Spoon into sterile 1/2-pint wide-mouthed freezer jars; cap. Or, if not
freezing, process in hot water bath 10 minutes for 1/2 pints and 15
minutes for pints.

This recipe yields 5 pints.

Comments: It is not necessary to pre-cook the pumpkin with this recipe.
Fruit butters make excellent gifts. Crockpot cover is used only during
the first 4 hours
