Enjoy farm fresh apple butter made for us by a 7th generation family owned orchard and canning facility in the northern Shenandoah Valley. Apple Butter is produced by the long, slow cooking of apples, with added “warming spices”, to a point where the sugar in the apples carmalizes, resulting in a dark brown spread with intense apple flavor. The term “butter” refers to the butter-like thick, soft consistency and the use of it as a spread. There is no actual dairy butter in the product.
Beyond the usual use of apple butter as a spread, it is also a great additon to baked goods, BBQ sauces, marinades and glazes. Use it as a side, add it to carnitas, stir it into plain yoghurt or add it as a condiment to a cheese plate paired with cheddar, brie or goat cheese. It is the perfect combination of sweet and savory!
