Yum! Easy Homemade Pumpkin Butter

What You'll Need

1 large or 2 small sugar/pie pumpkins (about 5-6 pounds total)
1 cup (7 oz.) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice or cloves

Prep your pumpkins: Slice off the bottom of the pumpkin with a serrated knife, then slice down each side, following the curve of the squash. Quarter the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and stringy bits with a grapefruit spoon. Try to get the interior as clean as possible, but don’t worry if there are a few errant bits; they’ll cook down. Chop the pumpkin into rough 1- to 2 -inch pieces. (And yes, you can absolutely save those pumpkin seeds for roasting! Check out these fun recipe ideas.)
