Fresh Apple Butter

Yield: 12 ounces

Skill level: Easy

There is nothing quite like a homemade spread to enhance your favorite treat! This homemade apple butter is made extra delicious by the sweet flavors of Autumn Glory apple. It's perfect for the holidays and sharing with family and friends. Grab the recipe below!


  • 9- 10 Autumn Glory® apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 cup of quality apple cider
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Place prepped apples, and all other ingredients, minus the lemon juice, into a large pot.
  2. Cook over medium heat, uncovered, stirring approximately every 5- 10 minutes until apples are partially broken down and soft. This will take 50- 60 minutes.
  3. Next, use an immersion blender to blend apple mixture until smooth.
  4. Then, return mixture back into your pot. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring until thickened. You ultimately want a thick, silky, deep brown.
  5. Once you are satisfied with the color, texture, etc. remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
  6. Transfer to jars or storage containers.
  7. Keep refrigerated, and enjoy on all the things- like drizzled in oatmeal, on biscuits, etc.
