Maple Monday-Maple Apple Butter

Using the recipe from last week's post on Maple Applesauce, I offer you this simple recipe for Maple Apple Butter. Easy and delicious on biscuits, toast, excellent swirled in some oatmeal and fantastic as a glaze on pork chops, apple butter is as versatile as it is tasty.

Tips:
  • If you want to go the simple route, you can make this using store bought applesauce. Just add a teaspoon of cinnamon and 3 tablespoons of maple syrup to the recipe.
  • Add more allspice or cloves to fit your taste. Some people like spice than others, so this recipe has a scant less than what I would normally add.
  • You could make this in a slow cooker or crock-pot, just combine all ingredients and cook on the low setting for about 6 hours. Stir occasionaly if possible.

Maple Apple Butter
 
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

 
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan or stockpot and bring to a boil. Turn down heat to low and simmer for 2-3 hours or until browned and thickened. Stir periodically throughout cooking to prevent burning.
