Apple Butter

Once upon a time, I discovered that Danny had never had apple butter. In fact, he didn’t even know what it was. He had missed out on this delicious addition to homemade bread. Maybe apple butter is a Southern thing? Who knows.

Apple Butter

  8 c applesauce
  1 T cinnamon
½ t nutmeg
½ t cloves
½ c honey or maple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a pot and cover partially with a lid. Bring the applesauce mixture to a slow simmer; simmer until it is very thick and almost half the amount remains. It will turn a deep brownish red color. Store in the refrigerator or freeze. Eat warm or cold on biscuits or sliced bread.
