No-Cook Pumpkin Apple Butter


Let me tell you a story that has nothing to do with this recipe.


As an elementary education student, I have to visit elementary schools and teach isolated lessons.  Last week, I taught a fifth grade class about food chains.  The students were great; they paid attention and participated well.  At the end of the lesson, I had the students answer some questions about what I had taught. I then put them in groups and let them discuss their answers.

As I was looking over their answers that night, I was pleased to see that most students had answered every question correctly.  They learned that producers make their own food and predators hunt for prey.  One boy, however, was a little off.

The question I asked: “Why are some animals called consumers?”

His answer: “Because they make babys.”

Well, at least most of the kids understood the lesson…


On an unrelated note, this “butter” makes a great after-school snack.  You can use it as a dip, spread it on toast, top it with granola, mix it into your oatmeal, or just eat it plain like pudding.  Best of all, this simple recipe can be whipped together in less than 5-minutes.
