These days, it’s difficult to get any apple butter, let alone decent apple butter, in the grocery store. Making apple butter is a fantastic way to keep the fruits of an apple harvest fresh for a long time. What is the difference between apple butter and apple sauce? Apple butter is prepared by boiling pureed apples for nearly an hour at a low temperature. As the purée cooks, the sugars in the apples caramelize, giving the apple butter its rich, sweet flavor and dark color.
There is no “butter” in apple butter, despite the name. It gets its name from its silky, buttery feel. On buttered bread, apple butter is excellent.
Today, I recommend making wonderful apple butter, which is also a quick and easy dish! If you’re unfamiliar, this is a Canadian recipe that is similar to compote in terms of preparation but differs in taste and texture. We added a little butter (we may have added more, but I thought it was enough) and maple syrup, which tasted like a tart tatin! The impact of caramelized maple syrup, wonderful! It’s great for breakfast and isn’t as sweet as jam.
