There is nothing sweeter than the apple butter days of autumn. – Linda Poindexter

Apple butter is one of my favourite things to bake with. You can use it in a recipe that calls for applesauce (double it, or there won’t be enough moisture) and the finished product is so smooth and apple-y that it is hard to just have only one bite. It’s fabulous in barbeque sauce and savoury dishes too. Summer Collier has used her amazing imagination to concoct a plethora of mouthwatering fare using apple butter in her blog, A Spicy Perspective:

    • I like it straight up too. I only learned about apple butter a few years ago when Sweet Baboo went to the States for work and he came back raving about how good fresh biscuits were with apple butter. 3 batches are in the fridge now and I’m not sure how much more I will make this year. I’ll see how I feel tomorrow.
