This creamy and delicious apple butter is the perfect versatile spread to eat with almost anything! Enjoy it alone or as a dip for apples, pears, bananas, celery, cucumbers, sweet potatoes or a healthy cracker of your choice. Or try spooning it onto fruit salad, a smoothie bowl, gluten free oatmeal or the wild blueberry pancakes on the Medical Medium blog.
Never underestimate the power of an apple. This fruit’s anti-inflammatory properties make it a top pick when you’re faced with practically any illness. Encephalitis (brain inflammation), IBS (intestinal inflammation), and viral infection (which can result in nerve inflammation) are just a few conditions in which apples can play the critical nutritional role of calming your system by reducing viral and bacterial loads that create inflammation.
12 medium-sized red apples, cored and roughly chopped
1 cup raw, unsweetened apple juice
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp alcohol free vanilla extract (or 1 vanilla bean)
Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker on very low heat and cook for about 10-12 hours, until dark and reduced. Transfer to a blender or blend until smooth using an immersion blender in the pot. If you would like the mixture thicker, transfer it to a pot and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes to thickness of your liking. Let cool and store in jars in the fridge.
To cook without a slow-cooker, place all the ingredients in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 hours, until dark and reduced. Transfer to a blender or blend until smooth using an immersion blender in the pot. If you would like the mixture thicker, transfer it to a pot and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes to thickness of your liking. Let cool and store in jars in the fridge.
Makes approx 3 cups
