Why buy apple butter at the store when you can make your own homemade version? Try a a little spread over whole wheat toast with low-fat cream cheese.
Ingredients:
4 lbs Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and quartered
1 cup water
1 cup apple cider
Brown sugar as needed
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
Grated rind and juice of 2 lemons
Directions:
1 Cook the apples in the liquid until soft. Pass through a food mill. Add ½ cup brown sugar for each cup of puree.
2 Add the spices, rind and lemon juice and cook over very low heat until thick and dark brown. This may take 3 to 4 hours.
3 If not to be used within a week or two, pour into hot sterilized jars and seal tightly.
4 ENJOY!
