What Kind of Apples are best?

Any kind of apple will work great for apple butter. However, soft apples work best. Choose varieties like Braeburn, Cortland, Fuji and McIntosh for the best results.

You can also ask the local farmer for recommendations on which apples would be best. If you already have apples on hand, go ahead and use them. You can use any kind you’d like.

How do I store the Apple Butter?

Store this apple butter in an airtight container or jar for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. I prefer to use Ball Jars for storage.

How to serve apple butter

Can the apple butter be frozen?

Yes, take it out of the crockpot and put it in your storage jar. For this, I do prefer glass storage jars. Then, freeze what you’d like. Be sure to leave about an inch of room at the top of your containers or jars. Freeze for up to a year.

How can I enjoy the apple butter?

Oh there are SO many ways you can enjoy this delicious apple treat. You can spread it on:

What’s the difference between Applesauce and Apple Butter?

Applesauce and apple butter are both made using a similar process, but they’re quite different. Applesauce you make by slow cooking your apples with water spices and some sugar for a shorter amount of time. Apple butter uses a similar process but is cooked much longer and slower so that the mix cooks down even further!
