Quick Cinnamon Apple Butter

Quick Cinnamon Ginger Apple Butter

 Cinnamon Ginger Apple Butter on a rice cake is one of my favorite afternoon snacks.  I like Lundburg’s Lightly Salted rice cakes topped with this simple recipe plus a dollop of plain Greek Yogurt and/or a sprinkle of sliced almonds.  This apple butter is also yummy with oatmeal and raisons or just stirred into plain Greek yogurt.


                             Quick Cinnamon Ginger Apple Butter

 2 cups apples with skin on cut into 1” cubes. My favorite apples for this recipe are Pink Lady, Opal, or Envy, but any of your favorites will be fine.

  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 2 tbls to ¼ cup fresh ginger coarse chopped. How much you use depends on how spicy you like your apple butter
  • 1 tbls cinnamon

Place apples, ginger, and apple juice in a saucepan.  Bring to a low boil and simmer covered for 10-15 min or until the apple juice has almost boiled out.  Check and stir frequently.

Cool and put into a food processor with the cinnamon.  Process until smooth.  If you like a chunky apple butter, process less.

Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
