    Roasted Apple Butter

    WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

    Roasted Apple Butter

    Making apple butter in the oven, rather than on the stovetop, produces a delectable spread with a distinctive caramelized flavor. This is a healthful alternative to commercial varieties, which usually contain added sugars.

    This Recipe Is:
    Ingredients
    Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 2 1/2 hours
    • 8  
      medium McIntosh apples, (2 3/4 pounds), peeled, cored and quartered
    • 2   cups
      unsweetened apple juice
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Arrange apples in a large roasting pan. Pour apple juice over the apples. Bake until tender and lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Using a fork or potato masher, thoroughly mash the apples in the roasting pan.
    2. Reduce oven temperature to 350°. Bake the apple puree, stirring occasionally, until very thick and deeply browned, 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours. Scrape into a bowl and let cool.
