Apple Butter Gifts

Let me just say that I’m a big believer in sharing jars of homemade preserves as a simple gift often. There’s no reason a jar of apple butter can’t be tucked into care packages and gift baskets.

However, there are times when we want to go a little extra mile or share some homemade preserves with someone who might not actually want or need a jar for their pantry.

So instead of giving them the jar, give them a sweet treat featuring the delicious spread for something different and wonderful all at the same time.

Start with the Best

As in all things cooking, start with the best, most flavorful ingredients. Use a flavorful, homemade apple butter, if at all possible in the following recipes.

If that’s not possible, use the best quality you can find in your local grocery stores. Something with all natural ingredients is going to be your best bet.
