Stefanie,

Finally bottled the last of my apple butter for the year. Final count of apple butter in my cupboard - 18 jars of varying sizes Smile . This will definitely last me a year if not two. Was beginning to get RSI from peeling buckets and buckets of apples Wink . Going to hang up my peeler and give it a much needed rest coffee .

Even managed to get 5 jars of strawberry jams from my midget strawberries - so happy with that Smile.

Will be pulling out my old strawberry plants soon and replant it with new ones, so that I can make tons of strawberry jam next year and have more 'fun' with lighting my blue flame Smile

For the rest of the apples, I am just going to juice and freeze .

Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.

Paisei, I seem to be 'stalking' you Embarassed . But what's RSI :roll: ? Once the peeler is hung up, you picking up the 'wok chan' soon Wink ?

Smile Smile RSI - repetitive strained syndrome - from peeling apples - I get my carpal tunnel symptoms every night whenever I do one lot of apple butter island. Looking forward to the day I can start experimenting with my 'wok chan' again, once I get rid of my tomatoes as well - any day now.

Your spiral pastry will be top of the list Smile

Carpal tunnel symptoms, sounds very medical :roll: . But luckily it occurs only during your 'harvesting' season like now. How nice to be able to pick your own fruits and can them as well * Mr. Green with envy*.

Waiting very patiently to see your 'wok chan' and pastry experimenting Very Happy

Stefanie,

its apple butter on almost everything - apple bun, yoghurt , toast..... Considered giving some to family and friends but I have to make sure they are going to eat it and not throw it away - lots of sweat have gone into making it. Smile

Have you tried it spread on a shortcrust basse in a tart pan...top with fresh berries or sliced peaches or even more sliced apples?
Sprinkle with almonds on top..bake till tart is cooked.
It's good!

And I hate to say this...it sounds disgusting..but I absolutely love apple butter with cold cuts...especially ham... Embarassed
The combi of flavours though...so amazing!

Ham - didn't think of that. Will try it next week when I go and get some shaved ham Smile

Shaved ham is in a sandwich...spread one side of the bread with apple butter...one side with mustard.
Layer with ham,veggies...whatever...then sink your teeth in! Very Happy

Thicker cold cuts are better with the apple butter.

Stefanie, thanks for tip on using the apple butter on sandwiches. It is now on my every cold meat sandwich or roll - it is really nice.

The pantry had sugar shortage when I was making my chinkiang vinegar spare ribs. As a last resort, I put in a big dollop of apple butter. I think that gave the dish that extra 'oomph' . Smile With 18 jars, I have to be inventive Wink

Sinner,I'm glad you like the combi!!

Now's it's in vinegar spareribs? Wow!!
Well why not?
Apple and pork are good friends too...keep getting creative with the apple butter in the kitchen,soon maybe you can publish a book on how to use apple butter creatively in the kitchen... coffee
