Have you ever had apple butter? That spreadable, spoonable deliciousness that’s essentially an extra-concentrated apple sauce?
Well, if you’ve made apple sauce, you can make apple butter. And even if you haven’t, it doesn’t get much easier than whipping up a batch of your own homemade apple butter. All you need are some apples and a little patience. And maybe a blender.
If you have one of these nifty peeler/slicer things, it will make your work much quicker. You’re just going to peel, core, and slice or dice a bunch of apples, pop them on the stove to simmer, and then wait. And wait some more. Stir occasionally too.
Eventually, the apples will cook down, turn golden brown, and concentrate their flavor. And that’s when you’ll know you have apple butter.
Slather it on your fresh biscuits or pancakes, mix it into your yogurt, or just eat it by the spoonful!
