OMG! Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter

A couple weeks ago, I overheard a convo between a cashier and customer because she seemed to be stockpiling on pumpking butter. I was never a fan of anything pumpkin, but was a bit curious to try it.

I picked up a jar tonight and added a scoop to fage plain yogurt. How delicious was this!

I can not believe I waited this long to try it. I see myself adding this to anything and everything - even plain pancakes - if I ever make them.

  1. Around this time of year, lots of farmer's markets and other gourmet food stores start selling pumpkin butter. If you like pumpkin pie, then this is a nice quick alternative on a piece of bread. It's not really butter (in case anyone was wondering), but more like a pumpkin spreadable jam.

      I've enjoyed the pumpkin butter I've had from farmer's markets and the like. However, I found TJ's pumpkin butter to be gross. And I generally like TJ's.

    2. Very tasty on french toast made of cinnamon challah.

      1. Williams Sonoma also makes a good pumpkin pecan butter... and it always goes on clearance price after the fall season!

        1. i see a trip to trader joe's in my future. :)
