Roasted Apple Butter

Why buy apple butter when you can make it at home in just a couple of hours? Making your own is a healthy alternative to store-bought varieties which usually contain added sugars and other additives we can't even pronounce. This recipe has no added sugar and gets all its sweetness from the apples.

My husband loved apple butter as a child, slathering on warm toast for a quick breakfast before school. He will be a happy man when I make this for him at home.

Apple butter can be used as a spread on toast, muffins, biscuits or bagels. Use it as a stir-in for oatmeal, yogurt or cottage cheese. Also try it dolloped on pancakes, waffles or pork chops. For a healthy after school snack, spoon some into a small bowl and serve with cinnamon-sugar or gingerbread pita chips.

This recipe calls for quartered apples. Watch our How to Easily Core and Slice an Apple video to learn more about cutting apples into quarters.
