The Easiest Way to Make Your Toast Taste Like Fall
Apple butter is basically applesauce that's gone to the dark side. When you cook the ingredients (apples, cider, spices, lemon juice—plus some brown sugar) in a slow cooker for hours, their flavor concentrates. The sugar caramelizes and turns the apples deep brown. The longer you cook it, the better. Wyss and Moore suggest letting it simmer overnight, since it will thicken while you sleep, and you can wake up to warm, fresh apple butter to spread on toast, muffins or scones.
