slow-cooked homemade apple butter hinted with sweet cinnamon and brown sugar
When the apple butter is cooking on the stove for the last hour after it’s been blended, it will splatter…a lot. Stirring often will help. Unfortunately, you can’t quite put a lid on the pot or else the liquid won’t evaporate like it needs to for the apple butter to thicken. It can be sticky and annoying, but I’d say the finished product is worth it. Be careful, though, because the apple butter will be very hot when it splatters.
