Quick & Easy Apple Pumpkin Butter
Apple butter is my absolute favorite thing to spread on toast. It’s also fantastic on pancakes too!
I still remember when we made apple butter in our Kindergarten class when I was a little kid growing up in West Virginia. We took turns all day stirring the pot and we each got to take home a little mason jar. I can still smell the spicy apples cooking!

For this recipe, you are welcome to store your finished apple pumpkin butter in mason jars. However, they should be kept refrigerated. This spread should last 2-4 weeks in the fridge.
