Manuka Honey Apple Butter Recipe

October 8th, 2018

‘Tis the season—for apples, that is! This spiced, sweet, and creamy apple butter is the perfect addition to fall dishes. It keeps for a week in the fridge, and you can spread it on muffins or toast, stir it into oatmeal, or even warm it up and drizzle a spoonful over ice cream! If you’re a fan of DIY projects, it also makes a thoughtful (and edible!) gift for the holidays.

Manuka Honey Apple Butter

Yield: 2 cups
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours and 10 minutes


5 large honey crisp apples, skin on, cored, and roughly chopped
Juice of 1 lime
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
3 tablespoons Wedderspoon Raw Manuka Honey


Add all ingredients except honey to a large stock pot and warm over medium heat. Cover and cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, or until apples have broken down. Add manuka honey, then use an immersion blender to purée until smooth. Let cool completely (the apple butter will thicken as it cools), then refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
