Bounding with apples and peaches I was in need of a simple way to use all of my excess produce. What better way than to make apple butter, but with peaches as well!. I used to wonder what do you use apple butter for? What is its purpose? It’s not butter at all, and it’s not jam. Hmmm. It has many uses. My favorite is as an ingredient in muffins, pancakes, or stuffed french toast. It can be used as an ice cream topping, mixed in cottage cheese for a snack. It can be added to an ice cream maker for home-made peach and apple ice cream. Freeze in Popsicle molds for a home-made Popsicle. Try in your oatmeal, on toast or with peanut butter for sandwich. I think it would be great over a gooey warm cheese as an appetizer. This recipe is so wholesome and easy to make it would be excellent first baby food. Make a big batch and use for lots of different things! I canned the majority for use during winter, but it can also be frozen.
- 8-10 lbs Peaches
- 8-10 lbs Apples (any variety will work)
- 5 tbs Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 C Brown Sugar (may omit if desired)
Roughly quarter apples and peaches removing pits and cores, with skin remaining. Place in large stock pot. Cook until tender and easily pierced with a knife. In batches, place in blender and puree until smooth. Place in jars for preserving if desired and enjoy!
