Apple butter is a smooth, creamy spread made out of apples and a few other ingredients. Keep one tin of apple butter in the fridge, ready to use, and freeze the rest in the fall to save for a midwinter treat.

Cut 4 lbs. of apples into quarters. Do not peel or core them beforehand.

  • Apple butter is a smooth, creamy spread made out of apples and a few other ingredients.
  • It tastes good on bread and is an interesting alternative to jam, regular butter and other popular toppings.

Place the cored apples into a large pot and add 3 cups of apple cider. Bring the mixture to a boil, then cover it and turn down the heat until it is simmering. Cook the mix for half an hour or until the apples are soft.

Place a few scoops of the mixture into a sieve and press it through with the bottom of a bowl or some other tool into a second bowl. Continue straining the apple through the sieve until it has all been pressed through.

Add 4 cups of light brown sugar to the mix, along with 2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. allspice, 1/2 tsp. ground cloves and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg.

Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the pot. Grate the rind on a small grater and add the lemon zest to the pot and mix the ingredients thoroughly.

Place the pot on low heat and cook it for a few hours, stirring frequently.When it has a smooth and thick consistency, it is done cooking.

Leave the mixture sitting on a stove until it is at room temperature.

Spoon the apple butter into sealed food storage containers, leaving 1/2 inch of space at the edge of each container. Cover the containers and place them in the freezer.
