Easy Homemade Apple Butter

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Have you ever come across a food that you loved so much that you remember exactly where you were the first time you ever had it? For me, it's apple butter. I was 9 years old and my mom had just brought home a little jar from the farmer's market to serve with dinner that night. Now, I'm a butter girl through and through, but once I had a bite of that sweet deliciousness, I was sold! As much as I have loved apple butter over the years, I have never made my own. With the cooler temps hitting, I've been craving some a lot lately, and thankfully Golden Blossom Honey had a very easy to follow Apple Butter recipe that made it possible for me to satisfy my craving this week.


This is the perfect fall spread. Paired with fresh muffins, rolls or bread out of the oven equals to pure bliss!

Ingredients
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
juice from one orange
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

  1. so it doesn't really have butter in it :)
    I didn't grow up in a house which had good food culture, so I don't really have tasty memories :) but I do remember some fragrances and aromas that I've used ten or more years ago and they're still in my head.

    2. Nope, no real butter here. Makes it a lot less fattening spread ;) Glad you have Honey Boo properly displayed so you can stare into his cute plastic eyes all day long!

    3. methinks that people in my country do something similar with quince... but the quince has a gelatinous quality so when it cools down it thickens literally like jelly :)

    4. I don't think I know what quince is. I'll have to go look that up. I don't think I would like apple butter if it were jelly-like. I love how thin it spreads over breads so you don't get gobs of it at once. Just a nice bit of flavor to punch up bread.

    5. ah, yes, somebody from US told me before they don't know what a quince is too :) It is funny because about 50 years ago you had tons of quince trees in America too but then some disease destroyed them all. It's a very fragrant cousin of apple and pear, something in between. It cannot be eaten raw because it's tangy but since it is very fragrant (similar to bergamot) it is lovely for preserves, boiled, in cakes and in jams. I have a tree across the street :)

    6. Well, now I see why I don't know about it. Way before my time. It does sound really lovely, though!
