It’s the secret ingredient…

What is the secret ingredient in this pumpkin butter that makes it so!


Yup, that’s right. It doesn’t seem like it would be a good idea but it turned out ah-maze-ing!

And it happened all by accident. (Doesn’t every great recipe come about with a touch of serendipity?)

Well, in this case, I needed to thin out the pumpkin and where usually apple juice is used, I substituted pure mango puree. Here is how it all came to be:


  •  3 cups pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup mango puree or 100% pure mango juice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves

Make it!

Add all the ingredients to a slow cooker, stir to combine,  and set on low overnight (or 8 hours). Ladle mixture into clean canning jars and allow to cool. Store in the fridge for 1 week or in the freezer for 6 months. Serve over ice cream or yogurt, spread on toast, or make these yummy pumpkin palmiers.Free autumn themed free canning labels - great for fall recipes and hostess gifts on Thanksgiving
