Liquid Culture’s Spiced Apple Butter

Say hello to your new bestie for this Fall. If you’ve never heard of Apple Butter, don’t worry, I was on that same boat just a few weeks ago. Think of a jam, that’s super soft and can spread like BUTTER, hence the name. There is no ACTUAL butter used in this creation, which makes me love it even more because I am all about that clean living. This simple creation can be used in so many ways. I’ve tossed it in a few marinades, BBQ sauces, and obviously the cocktail infusion or two. This could also be a delicious treat for guests to take home for your next gathering. Possibilities are virtually endless with this butter and I’m here to show you how!

  • 5 MacIntosh Apples Core and Stem removed

  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar Loosely packed
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg

  1. Roughly chop Apples (you can keep skin on), with core and stem removed.

  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients (except Calvados), extract all juices from orange and let this come to a soft simmer. Lower the temperature and let this simmer for 1 hr.

  3. Add Calvados during the last 10 minutes of the simmer, before taking it off the stove and blending the ingredients.

  4. Let cool and place into sterile container until it reaches room temperature before going into the fridge. Can last a minimum of 2 weeks before it starts to lose its flavour.
