Apple Butter

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by mel johnson

Apples, maple syrup and cinnamon are microwaved, then pureed, for quick and easy apple butter that's great on any fresh baked good, or sandwich.

This was much quicker and easier than my regular apple butter, done in the crockpot, which I haven't had time for. It comes out a little runnier than normal, closer to applesauce, but it will be good for those recipes that take apple butter in them. I would add a bit more spices next time to kick it up a bit.
