I wrote a post about making chia pudding with apple butter without realising that I forgot to do a post about the butter. So here it is ! The most amazing and healthy butter ever! Apple butter is basically a thick apple sauce which can be used as a healthy substitute for butter in some recipes. Most recipes available needs at least a couple of hours to make it and I was really reluctant to do it considering the small batch I was planning to make. But I remembered how my grandma used to boil apples to make special juice and that inspired my apple butter. With help from Google and a fantastic food blog, I managed to create my own apple butter. This recipe only takes about half an hour from start till end.
Adapted from recipe by Chefinyou
4 red apples
