GROW: The Book
Does anyone have a good recipe for apple butter. I just came upon a bunch of apples and would like to make some!
Here is a link to the one I use.
Thanks Michelle! I'll definitely try it! And read the book too:)
We love apple butter. Have found the best results came (no matter what recipe I used) from using a blend of apples both sweet and tart.
If you have an instapot, there are some good ones that use the device.
I agree with the sweet and tart balance. I love adding different spices to create applesauce batches with different spice profiles. For example, one might be more spicy with some black pepper and ginger. Another may be warming with cinnamon and cardamom. It is also lovely when you are making many batches--you end up with variety.
My favorite apple sauce right now has blueberry added. I think blueberry apple butter would be amazing! The recipe I use is in the Ball Canning book, just apples and sugar. I used cinnamon once, but got a bit too much in and it was overpowering which can happen with powdered spices.
I love apple butter. Wish I had thought of doing that last year when I had an abundance of apples. This year, we had very few and have finished off all of our apples.
Great idea! I love it:)
My grandmother used to make apple butter and I've been looking for a recipe-thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!
