This is our favorite apple butter. It’s made with tart granny smith apples and apple pie spices. It’s like a very good, buttery applesauce.
We think you will like this apple butter a lot with its spiced applesauce flavor and plenty of butter. Keep this recipe around.
6 cups Granny Smith or other tart apples cored, peeled, and cut into chunks
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon allspice
6 tablespoons butter
1. Place all the ingredients but the butter in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil and then simmer, uncovered, until the apple pieces are soft, about 20 minutes.
2. Place the cooked apple mixture in a blender along with the butter and process until smooth.
3. Serve chilled. Store in the refrigerator. The apple butter will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator.
