Paleo Pumpkin Butter!

A perfect paleo toddler snack!

I've been seeing jars of pumpkin butter on the shelves at various grocery stores, and have been thinking I should give it a try in the pot that is a crock.

This was ridiculously easy, and tastes so incredibly yummy.  If you're looking for a nice homemade gift for the holidays, look no further!

The Tools:

- 2 qt. crockpot

- 1 can (15 oz) pure pumpkin (you could also use 15 oz. fresh pumpkin puree)
- 1/3 cup apple cider (then go make Mulled Apple Cider with the rest of it!)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 heaping tsp. pumpkin pie spice

The Process:

Mix everything together well in your tiny crockpot.

Cook on low for 4 hours.  It will still be liquid-y and runny when it's technically done, but it firms up when you cool it down in the fridge.

Store it in the refrigerator and enjoy with apples, on cold chicken leftovers, on top of cooked squash or just straight on a spoon!
