Originally from Pennsylvania Dutch Country, I grew up around lots of homemade goodies. Goodies made by my family or friends within easy access. It wasn’t at all uncommon to shop from roadside stands set up alongside Amish and Mennonites farms. With a variety of offerings such as: homemade pies, cakes, sauces, fresh flowers, fresh produce, pickled and canned vegetables, and jams and jellies for sale. To this day, those trips to those makeshift “stores” are some of my fondest (and yummiest) childhood memories.

I love all things pumpkin anyway, so as I was whittling down my list of pumpkin recipes — have I mentioned how much I love fall? — I thought pumpkin butter might be one that would be a huge hit at my place, and Mommy was right.

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter is a delicious way to spruce up your multi-grain breakfast toast or English muffin. Or, if you’re like me, mix a tablespoon or so into your cottage cheese. Or, just slather it across a piece of bread and enjoy.

  1. I need something to take to a church bake sale and wonder if this recipe yields one jar and if so, could a double or triple the recipe to make more in one crock pot? I envision cookinga big batch the saturday before and putting them in canning jars with a pretty ribbon around the top to sell the next day. Thank you!

  2. Do I use can pumpkin or pumpkin puree like the picture shows? Sorry, just want to get it right!

  3. Could this recipe be doubled or tripled in the semester crock put batch and put in jars to sell at my church bake sale?

  4. Sorry, not semester, same

    • Hi Kim! You can either use canned pumpkin (not pie mix though) or what’s picture (it’s what I had on hand). And yes, you can easily double or triple the recipe to make larger batches; this batch yielded 2 jars (8 oz?) so you can switch out the jar sizes to suit your final use. Finding pumpkin and apple butter jars like this at church bake sales and bazaars is great – I have seen it sold like this many times! Good luck and enjoy! 🙂
