I love apple butter, but haven’t had it in a long time. So to remedy that, I made some with organic Gala apples, cinnamon, and cloves….Mmmm..MM!! I love desserts but don’t like a lot of sugar in everything I eat, so making it from scratch was a good way to get natural ingredients and no sugar added.
I peeled the apples, cut them in medium chunks, and simmered them in a dash of water until they were nicely cooked. Then I pureed them in a food processor and stirred in lots of cinnamon and a dash of ground cloves. The cloves give it the apple butter flavor. Sorry I didn’t measure the ingredients, I just add to taste.
I spooned the apple butter into a jar, and VOILA! Umm…oops…………
As you can see it didn’t last very long…about two or three days. Love it on my morning toast with tea. Didn’t even take a photo of it on my toast…maybe next time. If you’ve never made your own, give it a try. I know you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
For the month of October I am donating 50% of my profits from the sale of The Christmas Pin Society to Elizabeth’s Hands for Christ . With each purchase you will be helping to give a nursing home resident a softer place to lay their heads for Christmas. Thank you.
I’m glad you came for a stroll along Leisure Lane. Until next time, may happy days abound!
