Apple and Pear Butter

Apple and Pear Butter

This lightly spiced fruit reduction is a lovely addition to a picnic menu. The spices are delicious with cheese, so perfect for a cheese board or even a grilled cheese sandwich. In fact, this butter is tasty on most sandwiches. Toss a few tablespoons in with mashed kumara, spoon over yoghurt and muesli for breakfast… the possibilities are endless. This recipe can also be made with just apples or pears; the cooking time is the same regardless of the combination of fruit. Be warned that it does make a bit of a mess on the stove when cooking. I strongly recommend investing in a splatter guard!
