A few friends and I went to Sky Top Orchard to pick some apples last weekend.

Then we came home and made apple butter 🙂

{On homemade Brioche bread}

Here’s the recipe we used for the apple butter (from here).

  • 5 cups homemade apple pulp or unsweetened apple sauce
  • 7-1/2 cups cups white sugar (we used 1 cup brown and 4- 1/2 cups white- it is plenty sweet)
  • 3-ounce envelope Sure-Jell Certo Fruit Pectin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix applesauce or pulp with sugar in large sauce pan. Add spices and cook over medium heat, constantly stirring. When it reaches a full rolling boil, continue boiling for 1 minute then remove from heat. Immediately add the Sure-Jell and stir for 5 minutes (off of heat). Fill jars and seal. Place the jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes then let them cool on the counter to set.
We have used this recipe/method 2 years in a row and all really enjoy it. I hope you do too!
