Pumpkin Apple Butter

Between the cooler temperatures and the fantastic whole wheat carrot cranberry muffins Sweetpea and I made last week, I had a bit of a taste for fall...when I came across this recipe from Juicy Juice, I knew I'd found what I was looking for. Though it's already a super simple "fake out" style recipe, I didn't have any apples, so I modified it further:

1 (15oz) can of pure pumpkin
~ 3/4 cup of no sugar added applesauce
1 cup (100%) apple juice
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice

Combine ingredients in a saucepan and stir well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about an hour. Store up to 2 months in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

This "butter" is simply delicious, perfect for serving on muffins, bread, or as a pretzel dip - especially when paired with a pumpkin spiced latte!

Yummy! I've made pumpkin butter and apple butter separately but together sounds SOO much better! I'll have to try that this fall! Thanks!
