Bourbon Apple Butter

Bourbon Apple Butter

Toast just got that much better (if that's possible). Bourbon Apple Butter is a great breakfast addition.


  • 7 Honeycrisp apples, cored and chopped with skins 
  • 3 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg 
  • 3 tbs bourbon 
  • 1/4 cup water*
  • 1/4 cup sugar 


Step 1. 

Place all ingredients in an Instant Pot and cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. 

Step 2. 

Release pressure manually after timer, remove lid and switch to saute function. 

Step 3. 

Cook on saute stirring often so apple mixture does not stick to the bottom of the pot. 

Step 4. 

Once thickened to desired consistency, puree with an immersion blender (or stand up blender). 

Step 5. 

Pour finished apple butter in a pint jar and store in refrigerator up to a week. 

*If using a stock pot, increase water to 1/2 cup and increase cook time to 30 minutes with lid off, stirring occasionally. 

Sharon's Hint

Makes a great gift! Place a ribbon around the rim and gift with warm bread or biscuits.
