A Versatile Spread for Fall Camping

Janet Groene’s
Great Pumpkin Butter
    Cool autumn days, camping trips into hills crowned with red and yellow leaves, chilly evenings warmed by a campfire and acres of pumpkins waiting for the harvest. Thanks to canned pumpkin you can celebrate the season with this healthful, shortcut spread without having to start at the pumpkin patch.

4 sticks butter
15-ounce can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

    Soften butter and stir in everything else. Mix well. Press into molds such as margarine tubs and keep cold. Serve on pancakes, biscuits, grits, oatmeal, sweet potatoes. It’s also good on grilled meats. Let a little melt into sizzling hot pork chops, turkey burgers or ham steaks. Makes about 3 1/2 cups. 

Janet Groene’s newest book is, Survival Food Handbook, a guide to storing and preparing familiar supermarket food for boondocking and emergencies. No high-price survival rations required.
