I grew up eating homemade biscuits slathered in apple butter. I always have a supply whenever the craving hits. It recently occured to me that the stuff must be loaded with sugar. At any rate, I found this recipe in local recipebook from my hometown. I use splenda in place of sugar.
- 4 cups unsweetened applesauce
- 3⁄4-1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ginger
- 1⁄4 teaspoon allspice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cloves
- In heavy 1 1/2 quart saucepan, combine all ingredients.
- Bring to a boil, stirring often.
- Boil for 1/2 hour.
I am so glad I checked the new recipes this morning! I had a quart of "apple butter" that I had bought sugar free. They meant sugar free!! I thought it would have splenda or something in it instead. I was thinking seriously about throwing it in the garbage. I found this recipe this morning and decided to try it. I am so glad!! I haven't even allowed time for it to cool, and already I love the stuff. Its a keeper! Thank you so much for saving my quart of so called, "apple butter"!!!
