it,s that time of year again for home made pumpkin butter.

i love fall with all its colors and seasonal foods.One of my favorites is pumpkin butter or apple butter.This is a great recipe from a neighbor who made it one year for her guest at a longaberger party.Its simple to make and also makes a great gift.I made this for the open house at my antique space.I will probably make mini peacan pie muffins and snickerdoodle mini muffins...........just a nice bite size............
