Pumpkin. Pumpkin. Pumpkin.
I’m game for all things pumpkin. A few weekends ago I made a trip home to visit family. As usual, once I walked into the parents home a new treat was waiting for me. During this hometown visit, pumpkin butter was waiting to greet me. My dad is a genius in the kitchen and he’s had his eye on creating a batch of pumpkin butter for awhile now. Pinterest combined with my dads kitchen smarts made for one delish treat! Before we headed out, the parents made sure I had a mason jar filled with pumpkin butter to take home. It’s the best.
I mean, pumpkin butter. Does it get any better than that?
