Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Butter

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

I do a lot of baking in the fall, as I am sure most of you do as well. Warm bread, biscuits and rolls fresh out of the oven are just irresistible when the weather starts to get chilly. I always have to add a little spread to my breads, but right now I am trying to cut out the unhealthy spreads like butter and margarine. I'm in the process of trying to lose a little weight and get a little more fit, since I know the next 3 months are going to wreak havoc on my body with all the holiday goodies that will surely pass in front of my eyes, then go straight to my belly. I shared an apple butter recipe from Golden Blossom Honey a few weeks back, but I came across a Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Butter on their recipe page and the name alone made my mouth water. I've never heard of pumpkin butter before, but I couldn't wait to try it! 

Pumpkin Butter

If you like pumpkin pie, you are going to love this spread! It goes perfect with toast, muffins, bread, pancakes, or straight off the spoon. I think it would make a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving dinner table too, and it's a much healthier spread over traditional butter or margarine!  

Ingredients

1 (15 ounce) can (about 2 cups) pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped

  1. It has lovely colour for sure! And the photo is so well done, dear!
    But roast the pumpkin and puree it yourself instead of using silly cans! :)

    1. Actually, pumpkins aren't readily available where I shop year round, so the cans make it possible to still enjoy pumpkin whenever we want. Plus, I'm just lazy sometimes and enjoy the convenience lol.

    2. They're slowly appearing now here, their season is beginning :) You can always dice them and put them in the freezer to have all year around which is what I did before to have them always for cream soup :)

  2. I guess the "most of you do" wouldn't apply to me. What's baking again? lol
