Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

My pumpkin is home made not canned. Would you please use cups with pumpkin recipes? (Or add the cup amount along with ounces)?

Ok, this may be a strange question but can this apple butter be used as pumpkin pie filling and or as a filling for empanadas, or do you think it would not hold up and ooze everywhere? Like apple butter, this would be so amazing with some bread or rolls fresh out of the oven. I find it amusing that you couldn't pay me to eat pumpkin pie but I love everything else pumpkin...strange huh?

Oops, typo alert...can this pumpkin butter not apple butter, sorry about that!

Hi there! It can't be used in a pie because it's too soft.
