What could be better than a big spoonful of Apple Butter slathered (that’s an official foodie word) on a piece of Homemade Bread? Not much 🙂
I was inspired by my friend, Phoebe over at Getting Freedom, when she posted her Apple Butter recipe. I had made Apple Butter before, but not for a couple years.
It’s one of the easiest jams or jellies that you can make. Throw it all in the crockpot, stir it a few times, if you want, and smell the aroma.
It would make great gifts, too. Fill a small jar with the Apple Butter, cover with a piece of fabric, tie a ribbon around it and bake a loaf of bread. What a great teacher, friend, or even co-worker gift! Just to say “Happy Fall! ” 🙂
Apple Butter Ingredients
- Nutmeg (I didn’t have nutmeg, so I used allspice and it turned out fine)
Call for your trusted assistant to use the apple peeler/corer/slicer.
Place apples in crockpot.
Add sugar and spices.
Turn on low for the day or high if you are in a hurry.
After it’s done, pour it into the food processor to make it smooth.
It’s yummy on biscuits, but even better on this Homemade Bread, well, sort of homemade. I made it in the bread machine. Again, easy, dump the ingredients in and let it do it’s thing.
Ingredients: (this makes a medium loaf)
- 3/4 c. Milk or Water
- 1 1/2 T. Oil
- 1 1/2 T. Honey
- 1/2 t. Salt
- 2 1/4 c. Bread Flour (I ran out of bread flour, and my friends on Twitter assured me that all-purpose flour can also be used)
- 1 1/2 t. Yeast
Add liquid ingredients to bread machine (your machine may be different than mine) and then add dry ingredients.
Turn it on and let it go.
