Maple Apple Butter... yum!

We were recently given a huge bag of apples from a friend's tree, and in trying to figure out what to do with them, I cam across this recipe for Maple Apple Butter. I made it the other day, and it came out so delicious I just had to share it!

Apple Maple Butter

1/2 c. maple syrup
About 8 regular apples (Cortland or McIntosh Apples will give you lighter butter, while Melba or Paula Red will give you a darker butter)
1 tsp bottled lemon juice
1/2 c. butter
1 tbsp vanilla

  • Peel, core and slice the apples. 
  • In a big pot, mix all the ingredients together. 
  • Bring to a boil. 
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer for about 30-45 minutes (until the apples are very cooked, tender, and that there is barely any liquid left in the pot). 
  • Remove from heat. 
  • Puree in a blender or food processor. 
  • Pour into sterilized jars (same method as for canning jam) or simply keep in the fridge or freezer.
