Restaurant-Quality Maple-Apple Butter
This one is even better than the famous apple butter served at a popular French Canadian restaurant chain in Quebec. I make a huge batch using the tart apples from the tree in our yard. The sourness balances out perfectly with the maple syrup. Very freezer-friendly and great as a gift. No one will know how easy it was to make! Serve with toast or baguette.
You can use any apple variety of your choice. The smaller you cut the apples, the faster they will cook.
No need to worry how much butter you add to each batch in the blender, but unsalted butter is important here. Emulsifying the butter in at the end instead of cooking it with the apples is what makes this recipe extra special and not as dark as other apple butter recipes.
