Surprisingly to most, apple butter does not contain any butter. However, because of its name and the fact that it is used as a spread, people assume butter is one of its major ingredients.


  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • Pinch ginger
  • Pinch cloves


  1. Place the applesauce, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and cloves into a large saucepan and place over medium-high heat.
  2. Once the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Cool completely before serving as a spread.
