Easy Stovetop Apple Butter makes a simple delicious spread or even dip. Made with homemade Applesauce and Perfect Fall Spices.
I don’t know about you but I am loving Fall and everything about it. I especially love all the Apple and Cinnamon recipes I am looking forward to making and sharing.
I have had an idea for a recipe for a while now and I couldn’t decide how I wanted to fill it. After hearing and seeing so much about Apple Butter, which I had never tasted, I discovered that you make it with applesauce.
Needless to say I have a really easy and delicious applesauce recipe that I decided would be perfect for this Easy Stovetop Apple Butter.
I cored and removed the seeds from the apples but I didn’t peel them. You can peel them if you want. I chopped them, put them in a pot added a little water, lemon juice and a little sugar cooked them on low until they softened.
Once they were soft I blended them until smooth. I like it really smooth but if you prefer you could even leave it a little chunky.

If you have an immersion blender even better, if not just replace the mixture back into the pot, add some spices, cinnamon and allspice. I added a little brown sugar after it was cooked to sweeten it up a bit.
Then cook it on low and I mean really low for about an hour, stirring occasionally until it turns a beautiful dark brown colour, believe me the aroma alone is to die for.
Apple Butter is perfect as a dip or even as a spread on bread or why not on pancakes? Enjoy!
If you enjoyed this Apple Recipe I have a few others up my sleeve that you may enjoy.
