Roasted Apple Butter

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/roasted_apple_butter.html

From EatingWell:  Fall 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

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.

2 cups | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 2 1/2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  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.
