Bursting with sweet apple flavor and spicy cinnamon notes, Cider Apple Butter is great addition on a grilled cheese or used as a topping for whole wheat pancakes.

Cider Apple Butter
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
Makes 3 cups



  1. Peel, core and slice the apples into quarters. Combine apples and apple cider in medium sized stock pot. Bring cider to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook until apples are very tender about 20 minutes.
  2. Transfer apples and cider to a blender or food processor and puree the apples until mixture is very smooth. Add sugar and spices to the puree and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to medium low and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thickened and reduced 30-40%.
  3. Let cool and transfer to a glass jar. Store in the refrigerator.


NOTE: To check that Cider Apple Butter is done, drop a spoonful on the surface of the batch. If it holds its shape for several seconds, it is ready. Another method is to drop a spoonful on a chilled plate. If the consistency is thick and spreadable like jam, it is done.
