Making Apple Butter

As Fall approached and the apple harvest came in, I saw many recipes using apples and wanted to try out a few. One that caught my eye early on was making my own apple butter. I have never tried it before, and I found several recipes for putting it together, such as this blog post Apples Galore! How to Make Apple Butter from The Kitchn by Emma Christensen.

This small batch took quite a few hours to cook down and even then I didn't take it to the level of caramelization to what you would find in a commercial product. I was too afraid of burning the apple butter after so much work. In the future, I would probably make it using either the oven or a slow cooker. It would require less monitoring and stirring.

Additional pictures of the process are available on Flicker.

Overall, I am pretty happy with the results. The apples and some apple cider came from today's visit to the farmer's market in Encino and the taste is sweet, but not overly so. My morning toast will be dressed with this for the next few weeks, that is sure.
