Spiced Pumpkin Butter

Like the ornamental touches? It's all for you baby, alllll for you.

Spiced Pumpkin Butter
This spread will make anything sweet and winter-y! Enjoy on a sweet breakfast bread or, like me, in a spiced black tea (Winter Magic from TeaHaus).

2 c pumpkin puree
1 c sweetener (I used 1/2 c MI maple syrup and 1/2 c MI beet sugar)
2 t ground ginger
2 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 t ground cloves

Bring pumpkin and sweetener to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring constantly.*
Add spices and simmer for another 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.

*Stirring constantly is important because you don't want the mixture to burn!
