Harvest Apple Butter

Harvest Apple Butter

Every year in the fall, my heart pines for the crisp cool breeze, the beautiful and vibrant colors of fall leaves, and the smell of sweet cinnamon spiced comfort foods. Since I live in South Florida, for now I can only get the comfort foods. So to celebrate our version of fall, my son and I whipped up some delicious, clean-eating harvest apple butter! We had so much fun mixing up the ingredients and savored the fragrant smell of apples and cinnamon in the air. So we hope this brings a little genuine “fall” into your home.

Harvest Apple Butter

6 organic honey crisp or gala apples

2 organic Bartlett pears

1/2 cup of filtered water

1 Tbs. of pure maple syrup

1 Tbs. of coconut butter (also called manna)

1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. of freshly grated ginger

Preparation:

Peel, core and cut the apples into small chunks. Peel and cut the pears into small chunks. Add fruit, water, cinnamon, and ginger to a medium sauce pan and cook on medium-high heat for about 1 hour. Stir mixture several times during this simmer process so it won’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Add syrup and coconut butter, mix well and let cook another 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat and mash up the fruit with a wooden spoon. If you desire a smoother consistency, you can blend in a food processor or blender. We preferred our recipe chunky.

You can eat this like apple sauce (like we did), or use it on pancakes or waffles for a clean-eating meal, with yogurt or even some homemade ice cream. Oh it really is so yummy!

Bon appetite!
