Low Sugar Apple Butter ♥

Here is a great low sugar apple butter recipe I had from last year, healthy and perfect for fall enjoy! ♥




I like to use the slow method because it had the added benefit of making my whole house smell amazing!

 Ingredients ♥

  • 4 pounds (about 10) cooking apples, quartered
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbs cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp cardamom
  • 1 Tbs freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
Combine the apples, vinegar, cider, and water in a large stock pot (I use a 5 quart dutch oven). Bring to a boil. Cover and cook for 40 minutes, or until the apples are very soft.
Place a mesh sieve over a large bowl. Ladle the cooked apples into the sieve. Press down on them with a spoon to force the apple through to the bowl below, leaving the seeds and peel behind (you’ll end up with around 4.5 cups of apple puree and a half cup of seeds/peel). Discard the seeds and peel, and return the apple puree to the pot. Stir in the sugar and the remaining spics.
“Fast” Method: Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly (to prevent burning), until the apple butter is reduced to about 3 cups and is very thick — a line drawn across the bottom of the pot with the spoon should take a few seconds to go away.
Slow Method: Cook over low heat for 4-5 hours, stirring occasionally,
until the apple butter is reduced to about 3 cups and is very thick — a line drawn across the bottom of the pot with the spoon should take a few seconds to go away.
enjoy! store in a glass container!♥
