apple pumpkin butter {gf,v}

OK, let's keep obliging my pumpkin obsesh, shall we? This is an amazing put-it-on-everything butter. We make this every year, and I really can't get enough of it. I put it on toast, oatmeal, cookies, rice cakes, you name it, it gets slathered in this butter. Luckily, it's healthy...there's no dairy, gluten, or any other naughty stuff. So slather away friends. slather. away.
