This fruit butter is not too sweet and is a family favorite. Store in an airtight container or can. This is a great holiday present. I cover the lid with a pretty piece of cloth and add a handmade ornament for the top. Everyone loves this and always asks for more.

I'm about to make my second batch of this autumn gold. It's worth the time and effort, especially made with local organic apples and pears. I followed the recipe exactly except for a dash of clove, which gives it a distinctly southern nuance. Absolutely delish! Read More

I made a double recipe which is not a great idea because it takes longer to reduce the water but turned out wonderful! I also added 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/4 cup of brown sugar Read More
