"You've had apple butter, but this is something special. Really good served on plain biscuits, but also fabulous as a hot ice cream topping, served over baked sweet potatoes, or spread on pumpkin or zucchini bread. Serving size assumes 1 tablespoon per serving, and the recipe makes enough to fill five 8 ounce jars."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Wash five 8 ounce jars , lids, and bands in hot, soapy water; rinse and drain.

Step 2

Fill a canner with water and place the jars in the rack; cover and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

Step 3

Reduce heat and keep jars hot until you're ready to fill them.

Step 4

Put the flat lids in a saucepan and cover with water; bring just to a simmer over medium heat. Do not boil. Reduce heat and keep them hot until you're ready to use them.

Step 5

Combine pumpkin, pecans, and pumpkin pie spice into a 6- or 8-quart saucepan. Measure sugar into a separate bowl; keep close by.

Step 6

Stir fruit pectin into pumpkin mixture; add butter and bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly.

Step 7

Quickly stir in sugar; return to rolling boil and cook exactly one minute, stirring constantly.

Step 8

Remove from heat; skim off any foam with a metal spoon.

Step 9

Ladle quickly into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of the top.

Step 10

Wipe jar rims and threads with a damp cloth; cover with lids and screw rings down tightly.

Step 11

Place jars in boiling water bath in canner for five minutes.

Step 12

*This can also be frozen instead of canned if you'd like. After removing from heat, let cool almost completely and transfer to freezer containers or zip-top plastic bags, then freeze. Defrost in refrigerator before eating (you may have to stir as some separation can occur).
