Pumpkin Apple Butter

I love fall! The leaves are gorgeous, the air is crisp, and the pumpkins are ready to pick. Every fall I like to make pumpkin butter. This pumpkin butter is all natural and absolutely delicious! Your house will smell like fall while you make this. The pumpkin apple butter is naturally sweetened with honey and truvia. Enjoy!
