Apple Butter and Homemade Bread

By October 12, 2009Baking, Extras, Fall Favorites

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

  • Apples
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • 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.

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.
