Apple butter or apple sauce?
Apple butter making festivals and apple sauce recipes are showing up everywhere. Do you have a preference? Aren't they really about the same thing?
I love both but I eat apple sauce most often, seems it goes with any meal. Apple butter I only eat for breakfast.
They really are two different things. Apple sauce is an apple peeled, cored, and cooked until it is completely soft. Apple butter goes much further. The cooking is low and slow and takes several hours. The natural sugars in the apples caramelize and the flavors intensify, resulting in a rich thick spread.
Thank you, this is very helpful. I imagine apple butter has a higher sugar content
I have always wanted to make apple butter, neither of you have a recipe at HP for it do you? I always have apples ruin so I could put them to good use!

I suddenly developed a yen for some home made apple butter...and I'm wondering what variety of apples would be the best to use? It's been over 25 years since I made any, and I never had a real recipe...just seasoned it by taste, and no recollection of what kind of apples I had back...

Here is a recipe that I'm sure everyone will love. Its Crock Pot Apple Butter and I love to make it out of Granny Smith Apples. You can use other types of apples but Granny Smith Apples will produce the best flavor of any apples. 1. 7 Cups Peeled And Diced Granny Smith Apples2. 2 Cups Apple Cider3....

I think we pretty much decided it was the egg before the chicken. So, the seed came before the apple. But how did the egg and the seed form?????Wondering(Actually,I would say, in the realm of science there is no answer whatsoever.)
