apple pumpkin butter


found this recipe in november 1996 family circle. will be making this up this year to include in some christmas baskets for our teachers at the local school. i like this recipe because it can be canned or frozen and will last up to six months that way, or can be refrigerated and will last up to a month. needless to say, i will be canning mine for the gift baskets, but am hoping to make enough so that i can keep some for myself in the fridge.
