I have several friends who actually wait for me to make Apple Butter in batches that I give as gifts. In September and October, it’s apple harvest time. This year our very old apple tree produced apples for the first time in years. So armed with 4 kilos (8 pounds) of our homegrown apples it was time to make a childhood favorite. Available in jars back home, it’s an easy recipe to make at home and wonderful on your buttered toast or with your yogurt in the mornings. Strange as it may sound there is no butter in Apple Butter. This will keep in the fridge for several months.
Of course, apples are available all year so feel free to make this anytime you like. Apple sauce apples are best, soft varieties.
I am translating this recipe from pounds and ounces to metric measurements.
