Butter Me Up You Little Apple

Posted Nov 17 2009 3:23pm

Apple halves Nothing says apple quite like autumn.

Wait! Did I get that backwards. Nope. No I sure didn’t. It’s true. In Canada, autumn and apples go hand-in-hand. Hand-in hand like ginger and hazelnuts, like sesame seeds and pomegranates, like flaxseed and blueberries, like cranberries and almonds, like pumpkin seeds and raisins and like apples and oats.

Huh? Have a I lost you yet?

Well, as I mentioned, I have a contest announcement to announcify today. As you know, I am a big proponent of whole foods. When I met the lovely peeps from Taste Of Nature and introduced myself, I mentioned my site and that I heart their bars and they sent over a generous helping so I could share the Taste of Nature love. Why do I love these bars more than most? Because they are made with food. You can even recognize food in the bars like almonds, and raisins plus, they have fun names like Caribbean Ginger Island and Chilean Blueberry Fields that kind of make me want to pack up these organic bars and head to these delightful destinations (the bars make great travelling foods).

In honour of autumn and apples, I am tying this contest in with my desire to get some great new appley recipes into my repertoire, not to mention that Taste of Nature has a Niagara Apple Country bar and Niagara Apple Country is just a couple hours from where I live.

I am going to share with you my favourite, easy apple recipe and one of the ways to enter the contest, is to share yours with me. Contest deets are at the bottom. For now, delight in this little apple number.

Just Apples Appley Apple Butter
8 apples, cored and quartered (leave the peel on if organic)
1 apple, cored + 1 cup water

  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Blend together the apple and water. Strain out pulp, leaving behind one delicious glass of apple juice
  • In a baking dish, lay out apples and cover with apple juice
  • Place in oven for 1 hour
  • Remove and, with a potato masher, mash the apples down into a pulp
  • Reduce oven temperature to 325
  • Put apple mush back into the other and bake for another 2 hours
  • Remove and either mash again by hand or run through a food processor for a smoother consistency. 8 apples cooked down to about two cups worth of apple butter is a pure little apple party in your mouth.

And now to enter the contest.
