I bought a jar of pumpkin butter but i don't know what to eat it with. I just eat it in spoonfuls.
Try mixing it with cream cheese. It makes a good spread for toast or bagels. Or if you like to bake, do a search for nice muffins or such with pumpkin butter. There are lots of baking uses
Spread it on anything you would spread regular butter on. Toast, english muffin, scone, biscuit, etc.
c. cooked and mashed pumpkin (see below)
1 (2-ounce) package powdered pectin
4-1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice (see below)
1/2 tsp unsalted butter
Prepare the pumpkin:
Two medium size sugar pumpkins (about 4.5-5 lbs total) should generate enough meat for this recipe. Cut the pumpkins in half from pole to pole with a sharp, heavy knife. With a large spoon, scoop out the seeds and goo in the middle and discard (or save the seeds if you wish to roast them). Lay the pumpkin halves cut-side-down on two half sheet pans that have been lightly oiled or are lined with a non-stick surface like Silpat or Reynolds Release. Bake at 350ºF until the flesh is soft and a paring knife pierces through it easily, 30-45 minutes depending on the thickness of the flesh. Remove and allow to cool. When cool enough to touch, scoop the flesh into a large bowl and discard the skins. At the least, mash the pumpkin meat with a masher, or better yet pass through a sieve or a food mill for a smoother, more even texture. Set aside until ready to prepare the butter.
Spread on toast, on a peanut butter sandwich instead of jelly, with pound cake, spread on waffles, with pork chops instead of apple sauce...
