Anyway, this is a favourite of mine (no nutritional analysis cause it is
really old), and nobody get on my back about the maple syrup...all can
make their own free choice about the sweetners they use.
SPICED MAPLE PUMPKIN (OR SQUASH) BUTTER
4 lbs pumpkin or butternut squash, peeled & cut into chunks
3 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp each: cinnamon & cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup maple syrup
1. Put pumpkin, water and salt into large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce
heat and simmer for about 40 min., until very soft. Preheat oven to 300 F.
2. Puree pumpkin in large bowl. Stir in spices & sweetner then pour the
mixture into a shallow casserole, glass or stainless steel.
3. Cook in oven for 1 hour, until thick (this could take longer,
depending on the moistness of your pumpkin)
4. Pack in clean sterilized jars, seal & process 10 minutes in boiling
