easy homemade apple butter spread on toast with apples in background


5 medium apples, peeled and sliced

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup honey

1/8 cup apple cider

1-1/2 tablespoon All-Spice


Combine apples, brown sugar, and honey in a large pot.

Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 1 hour or until apples are very tender, stirring occasionally.

When apples fall apart and are tender, remove them from heat.

Stir in All-Spice.

Transfer to blender or food processor and puree until smooth



A mixture of apple varieties, rather than just one type, will produce apple butter with rich, complex flavor in this recipe.
