Pumpkin Apple Butter

I have been trying all kinds of new recipes lately. Some turn out really good.......but some not so good! I love anything pumpkin so when I saw this recipe I knew I just had to try it. It was soooo easy & so so SO good!

Pumpkin Apple Butter
1 (29 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
2 cups apple cider
1 cup applesauce
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

{I doubled the recipe}
In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, combine all ingredients.
Simmer, uncovered, for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until thickened.

{ I read the comments beforehand and a lot of people talked about how messy this part is...... and they were SO right!!! When it pops up every now and then and gets all over your stove. I even had to clean my floors right in front of my stove when I got done. It was not so bad that I would not do it again though bc it tastes THAT good! }

At this point you can refridgerate up to 1 month or freeze or can them using a hot water bath method. I canned them because I am giving some of them away as Christmas gifts :)
