there was a lot of uncertainty this past year. but there was also apple cranberry butter. in february omar and i made our first of a couple of trips to atlanta to look at a job opportunity there. both times we went the weather was crisp and perfect and included a few visits to the flying biscuit. i remember the food being quite good, but i remember liking the apple cranberry butter so much that when i decided to make it the other night i thought i’d probably worked up the memory way too much and figured it was a good possibility i was in for disappointment.
not so. whew. it’s good. nutmeg and cinnamon and cranberry good. it was like making christmas in a pot. why in the world i didn’t think of halving the recipe, i don’t know. but now i have 4+ cups of this stuff. here’s hoping it freezes well.
here is the recipe if you’d like to give it a go. note – the recipe is a bit vague on directions but i let my apples cook down for a good hour. and unless you like to search for/chew on little shards of cinnamon stick, i’d suggest finding and removing it before you puree it. ahem.
