Apples have been mentioned a lot lately. It’s starting to be the time of year when the leaves change, squash is in season, and apples are falling off trees.
When we had our first fall teaser a few weeks ago I was in the mood to do something with apples. I decided on apple butter.
But this year apple butter was first on my fall to do list, and I was so happy with the results. If you have never tasted apple butter, imagine a smoother and slightly sweeter applesauce…
This recipe tastes clean, homey, and isn’t half bad for you! I decided to cut down on the sugar for a healthier spread.
I also chose to leave out the spices. After reading through different recipes online, I noticed the different variations. Some people liked a lot of sugar, some people wanted a little less. Some people wanted to add nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, salt and other spices…while other wanted a simple and purely apple butter.
You can be as creative as you want with this. Use what you have on hand, and the type of apples you like.
