Dominique Eastwick’s Easy and Delicious Pumpkin Butter

So here is my super easy recipe for Pumpkin Butter wonderful on bagels or crackers.

1 lrg (29 ounce) can pumpkin puree or you can use the fresh flesh from the pumpkin by baking it for 30 to soften the flesh before cutting it from the skin and pureeing it.
3/4 cup apple juice
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Combine pumpkin, apple juice, spices, and sugar in a large saucepan; stir well. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes or until thickened. Stir frequently.
Transfer to sterile containers and chill in the refrigerator until serving.
