  • apples - 5 pcs.
  • brown sugar - 150 g
  • apple cider - 300 ml

How to make

Apple butter is a thick, slightly caramelized apple puree with aromatic spices.

It can be eaten with toasted bread for breakfast or it can be served in small amounts with poultry or pork to add a sweet fruity flavor.

The apples are cleaned and cut into pieces. Pour them with the cider and boil them under a lid for 20-30 minutes or until they have perfectly softened and have absorbed all of the liquid.

Blend them with the sugar and butter and season them with cinnamon and crushed cloves.

Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and place the puree to the hob over low/moderate heat (on the 3-4 degree out of 9).

Boil for another 30-40 minutes or until it acquires a caramel color and it thickens enough.

Stir periodically, so that it doesn't burn.

The apple jam can also be baked in an oven pan and in that case it should also be stirred from time to time.

Pour it into jars and store it in the refrigerator for up to a month.

If desired, a larger amount can be prepared and sterilized for the winter in jars and that way it will last a long time.
