  • 250-300 grams roasted pumpkin (any type of sweet squash works: Cinderella or sweet pumpkin, butternut squash, etc.)
  • the juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup honey (60 grams), can be substituted with sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


You can adjust the sweetness of the butter depending on the sweetness of the pumpkin you’re working with!

  1. Purée the roasted pumpkin, add it to a pot, then add all the ingredients to the pot.
  2. Cook the mixture down, for 2-5 minutes, or until all the water has evaporated. The butter will go from a bright orange color to a light brown.
  3. Store the mixture in an airtight container, in the fridge, for up to 2-3 weeks.

I speak 5 languages, but my favorite way to communicate is through the universal language of food. I translate food to be more approachable and accessible for the everyday cook. I didn't grow up with a lot, so I’ve always loved thrifting and finding a good sale. That also shapes my approach to cooking: I try to make most of my recipes as affordable as possible, and that is what my SCRAPS newsletter is about.
