So do any of you have apples just sitting their? Not being eaten? I know I did until yesterday when I decided to make Apple Butter. It was also my day to make My Homemade Bread so i thought, "Mmmm warm bread with apple butter." Sounds amazing doesn't it!?! Well it tasted amazing! After searching for a few recipes i just came up with my own. Most of the recipes call for too much sugar and i didn't want to add that much. I don't need all that extra sugar and neither does my family. I used 1/2 a cup of brown sugar but next time i'm going to swap it for Agave Nectar. It's much better and healthier for you!
Okay so here's the recipe & a few pictures. It's really easy to make and it would be perfect on bread, toast, yoghurt, to use in your granola and even to sweeten up your cereal if you need to :)
10-12 apples (you could use whatever apples you want)
1/2 brown sugar
1/2 apple juice
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp go cloves
1. Peel, core and slice all of your apples.
2. Simmer all of your ingredients in a pot until the apples are soft, the liquid has evaporated and the sauce is dark brown and thick.
3.Puree your mixture...DONE!
And of course i couldn't help but my crafty mind to wander so i had to pour some in a mason jar and wrap it up to give to somebody as a gift! When i saw how it looked i thought how cute it would be to give these away for Christmas! It makes a perfect little inexpensive gift and a tasty one too! Hope your inspired to make your own or to bless someone with a little taste of heaven.
