How To Make Apple Butter
So, the best apple butter I ever tasted? That was while having breakfast in New York at the Snack Taverna in Bedford Street, Greenwich Village. Rings a bell? No? Yes? OK, so for the die hard fans: that’s a good couple of steps away from the Friends building facade. Yep. This is ’only for reference’ of course…

- 7 oz unsalted butter (200 g), soft at room temperature
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 4 tbsp apple sauce at room temperature
- a pinch nutmeg
- Put the butter in a large mixing bowl. Make sure the butter is at room temperature so very soft and smooth! Whisk it well until pretty creamy. Then add the apple sauce.
- Stir well until the apple sauce is fully incorporated. If the apple sauce doesn’t mix well with the butter, that’s because the butter is not soft enough or the apple sauce is too cold. Add the caster sugar to the apple butter.
- Stir again. Season with a little pepper and a pinch of nutmeg to taste.
- Stir well. Check the seasoning and add extra sugar, nutmeg or pepper to taste if necessary.
- Spread the apple butter onto toast. You can store the rest of the apple butter in a clean jar in the fridge if you’re not extending to use it immediately.
