Apple Butter Recipe
This recipe for apple butter is so simple, with just a few staple ingredients and one piece of cooking equipment.
Apples: I used Gala apples, but any variety will work fine.
Sugar: A combination of white granulated sugar and dark brown sugar will sweeten this apple butter perfectly.
Spices: The flavor comes from all the warm and cozy fall spices. So get to the spice rack and grab the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and kosher salt.
Liquids: Not much in this area, just a little pure vanilla extract, and maple syrup.
Begin by peeling, coring, and slicing the apples.
Once the apples are ready, place them in a cooking blender, put the lid on, and set it on puree. Depending on the blender, you may need to pause it a couple of times and stir the apples a bit to be sure they are all pureed. You may also have to add the apple slices in batches.
As soon as you have all the apples through the first puree cycle, add the remaining ingredients and set it to puree again for about three minutes.
Once the apple butter is done, leave the blender on and keep warm with the lid off to make it thicker if you’d prefer. The other option is to pour the entire pitcher of apple butter into a slow cooker or Instant Pot set it to high, and leave the lid off until you’ve reached your desired consistency.
Plus, your house will smell fantastic!
Apple butter doesn’t have to be long or tedious when using a cooking blender. This Recipe for Easy Apple Butter has all the flavor and texture you’d expect from a whole day of cooking.
