Lauren Marie’s Gluten Free
Plus, those smells and tastes are just down right homey. And if you pour that flavor combination into a mason jar, that's as homey as homey gets!
This time of year, it's all about apples. They are beautiful, crisp, and sweet. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love to make apple pies, apple crumbles, and apple tarts, but this year, I wanted to make an apple spread that tasted like fall and winter: the C-G-N combination.
As a kid, I had tasted my share of strawberry and grape jellies. As a bride, I learned of my husband's love for blackberry jelly and eagerly shared in it. And now, I live 45 minutes away from a town known as the "Winter Strawberry Capital." It didn't take me long before I started my yearly strawberry jam making tradition.
But I must admit apple preserves or apple butter had never been in my comfort zone. I was up for the challenge.
I started recipe testing. My two goals were to use that C-G-N combo to get a bold apple flavor and to make it easy. Mission accomplished with my Homemade Apple Spread! I love to serve it on gluten free crackers or bread. My husband loves it in the morning with his hot coffee. And this past Saturday I served it with my Pumpkin Cornbread at a morning tailgate before a football game. It was a huge hit!
And with that C-G-N combination, my Homemade Apple Spread is truly fall and winter in a jar!
