Yes, but you can it in chunks, not pureed. Pressure it at the right pressure for your altitude. 90 minutes for quarts, 55 minutes for pints.

Canning pumpkin butter or mashed or pureed pumpkin is not recommended.

Home canning is not recommended for pumpkin butter or any mashed or pureed pumpkin or winter squash. In 1989, the USDA's Extension Service published the Complete Guide to Home Canning that remains the basis of Extension recommendations today, found in the September 1994 revision. The only directions for canning pumpkin and winter squash are for cubed pulp. In fact, the directions for preparing the product include the statement, "Caution: Do not mash or puree." More information can be found here: http://www.uga.  pkin_butter.html

Directions are given for canning cubed pumpkin; it would really to your advantage to check the info out at the site above.
