Pumpkin Maple Butter is ready to ship!

Posted on September 26, 2017  /   Posted in Blog Posts

This pumpkin curing in the greenhouse at Rabbit Hill is the variety Winter Luxury. Amy Goldman calls this fruit “the finest pie stock pumpkin in the land”, and we could not agree more!

  With a heritage that dates back to 1893, we grow over 100 pounds of Winter Luxury pumpkins, and harvest in late September. The pumpkin is baked, seeded and pureed. Then we set to work to make pumpkin maple butter.

To the puree is added organic maple syrup from Kinney Sugarhouse, a touch of brown sugar, spices and lemon juice. As this mixture cooks, it becomes smooth and velvety, with a tremendous pumpkin flavor.

We then put it this delicious butter in a jar for you to enjoy!

Our family’s favorite way to enjoy Pumpkin Maple Butter is Pumpkin Maple Cheesecake Bars
