Apple and Cider Butter

This apple and cider spread is a tasty treat.


  • 1 kg apples
  • 300 ml cider
  • water
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • sugar
  • 1 lemon


  1. Quarter and core the apples, place them in a pot and pour over the cider.
  2. Then add enough water just to cover and the spice. Bring to the boil and simmer until the apples are soft and mushy.
  3. Sieve or pass the pulp and weigh. Put the pulp back on the heat to gently dry before adding the warmed sugar, allow 350g to 450g of pulp.
  4. When the sugar has totally dissolved add the zest and juice of the lemon. Continue to cook gently until drawing a wooden spoon across the surface leaves a trail.
  5. Pour into wide mouthed jars or trays, cover with waxed paper cool and seal.
