Apple butter is the perfect fall twist on your traditional summer berry jam. Flavored with pumpkin pie spices, this tasty treat is the perfect topping for breakfast biscuits or even a late-night ice cream sundae.
3 pounds of apples
3/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of water
1 cup of packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon of apple pie or pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1. Core the apples, cut them into wedges, and place the pieces in a medium saucepot. Add the apple cider vinegar, salt, and water.
2. Set the pot over medium heat. Cover, leaving a little space open for the pot to vent, and simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat when apples are extremely tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.
3. Place apple mash and liquid in a food mill set over a large bowl. Grind the apples into a fine sauce and discard the peels.
4. Place apple sauce back into the original pot. Set back over medium heat and add sugar, spices, and vanilla. Simmer, stirring every couple minutes, until sauce thickens and turns dark brown, about 15 minutes.
5. Cool, then store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
