I’ve been on a blender kick lately (making all the homemade salsa and creamy potato soup) and decided to recreate my favorite apple butter with a fall twist. This recipe is great for using leftover pumpkin puree.

How to Make Pumpkin Apple Butter

There are a few different methods when it comes to making apple butter. Some prefer to cook it low and slow in a slow cooker, while others let it simmer on the stove for hours. This recipe comes together in minutes in the blender.

  1. Core, peel, and dice the apples.
  2. Steam the apples for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add apples and remaining ingredients to a blender.
  4. Pulse until desired consistency.

Tips for Making Pumpkin Apple Butter

Be careful not to over-blend your ingredients or the apple butter will be too thin. If you want something a little more chunky, try this Chai Spiced Applesauce or these simple Sautéed Cinnamon Apples.

I like this recipe even more the next day after the flavors have had time to marry in the refrigerator. Spread it over warm, fresh bread or add it to your favorite creamy oatmeal.
