Apple Butter

Apples are nutrient-rich and easy on the budget.

Good News! There are areas in the Pacific Northwest where apples have been protected from heavy frost. You can pick those with unblemished skin and make applesauce, apple butter or pies. Yes, they are past their peak crispness and flavor but they are fine for sauce. Be sure to wash, core and cook them right away.

A previous post has a recipe for applesauce and look for Ardis’s apple pie recipe coming soon. For “Apple Butter”  follow Gabriel’s recipe.gab-recipes It’s a simple condiment that is delicious with toast, steel-cut oats or on hotcakes .
