This 30 minute sweet potato butter is simple to make and is the perfect fall spread for biscuits, on pancakes, in oatmeal, or even try it on top of ricotta toast. It makes enough to keep a jar for yourself and share the goodness with a neighbor. Enjoy!


  • 2 (15 oz) cans sweet potato puree
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium pot and mix well.
  2. Bring to a boil (the mixture is thick, but you will see multiple bubbles pop through the top). Reduce the heat to medium low.
  3. Let simmer for 30 minutes, stirring often. If there are still too many bubbles popping through, reduce heat to low.
  4. After 30 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Transfer to glass mason jars and keep in fridge or give to friends. It will stay good for up to 3 weeks. Enjoy!
