Can you find Pumpkin Butter in Montreal?


I saw a recipe that I would like to try. It asks for Pumpkin butter.
I have never looked for it. I guess that it must be available somewhere.
It should come in a jam like jar.

Thank you.

  1. After doing a search for pumpkin butter, it looks like something that can be made in less than 30 minutes at home. You should check the recipes should you not be able to find the product in store.

        Yes I did think of WS but they say that the item is seasonal.
        I have to find a local Montreal, Canadian store that carries it all year round.
        It is maybe not too hard to make at home it but I want to have some for lazy days.

        1. re: Radha2009

          WS has opened in Laval
          Maybe try that new grocery at Bleury and de Maisonneuve
          Good luck and report back. I had some pumpkin butter on a bagel this morning and it was gooooood

          I don't think there is one in Montréal proper - only in Laval.

          I've made it myself, to make pipian - no recipe, just blending pumpkin seeds in a very basic food processor. You can find the seeds at Anatol and many other places.

            That would make pumpkin seed butter, no? I thought pumpkin butter would be more like apple butter: pumpkin cooked down with sugar & spices to make a sweet spread???
