  3. Add the pumpkin and using a stand blender or immersion blender, puree the mixture until smooth. Return the mixture to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally about 15 - 20 minutes, until the mixture has thickened.
    Transfer boiling hot spread to sterile, airtight containers. Close the lid and turn the jars upside down to create the vacuum effect. You can also let cool completely and refrigerate up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months.
