Balsamic Apple Butter

- July 09, 2015 -
 

On rainy days, the only things that sound good to me are comfort foods. Although I usually make apple butter once a year to give out as Christmas gifts, this recipe was too good not to share!

Balsamic Apple Butter

Use any variety of apples you like, I prefer Missouri Jonathan apples or Gala apples. Make a large batch when apples are in season, and seal in jars to add to holiday gift baskets. Vary the flavor of Dove Balsamic vinegar to your taste; for sweeter, richer butters Red Apple, 18 yr Traditional, Cinnamon Pear and Vanilla are excellent choices; to try something a little more tart, experiment with: Honey Ginger, Cranberry Pear,  or Sicilian Lemon White Balsamics

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Place apples in 6 qt. slow cooker. Pour Dove Balsamic Vinegar over apples. Cook on low setting for 6 to 8 hours, until apples are very soft and falling apart.
  2. Stir apples, breaking up any large pieces with a spoon. Add sugar, continue to cook on low for another 6 to 8 hours until very well caramelized. If there is excess liquid, cook on high for 1 hour with lid removed, scraping down sides occasionally. Puree.
  3. Pour into hot sterilized jars and process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes, or allow to cool to room temperature then refrigerate. Makes 3 ½ - 4 pints.
