This blueberry apple butter is simple and delicious fruit butter that goes well with crackers, toast or just about anything you would use jam or jelly for.

Blueberries are definitely in season at the moment and I couldn’t be happier about it. Mini Chef eats them like candy and I enjoy a few here and there for a quick pick-me-up during the day. I love to pair them with walnuts or almonds for a clean snack or small meal.

But occasionally, it’s nice to have something a bit more decadent. This wonderful fruit butter will liven up the dullest piece of toast. So add a little something extra to breakfast this week! I mean really, who wants drab toast?

Ingredients

Equal amounts of:

  • apples (cored, sliced and peeled)
  • blueberries (fresh or frozen - no sugar added)

Other Ingredients:

  • water (enough to reach the top of the fruit in your pot)
  • ground cinnamon (about 1 tbsp per 6 cups of fruit)
  • vanilla extract (about 1 tsp. per 6 cups of fruit)
  • honey (about 1 tbsp. per 6 cups of fruit - or to taste)

Instructions

  • Put the apples, blueberries and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the liquid is nearly gone.
  • Add cinnamon, vanilla extract and sweetener to taste. If this adds too much liquid (when using honey), continue to boil it down further.
  • When you have a nice thick sauce (like thick apple sauce), remove from heat and allow to cool. 
  • Store in a container in the fridge for up to 1 week, or freeze up to 4 months.

  1. This sounds great! How long will this keep in the fridge?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Anna – About 2 weeks, give or take.

  2. Can you give me some idea of amounts. I don’t want a lot, it’s just for me, so I was wondering how many apples and blueberries I should use.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Job – How many jars do you want to end up with? 1 or 2?

  3. Great idea. Can you freeze this?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Celia – I haven’t tried, but it should freeze just fine, I would think.

  4. I have frozen apple butter just fine, so I agree it probably will freeze fine.
    What about canning though? It is in a mason jar, do you think it would can okay? I’m starting to consider canning as an option for us right now…

    ps. I love the colors and design work on your site. Very pretty!

      Samantha – Thanks! Actually, I know nothing about canning. This was just a jar I had handy. You would have to take the recipe to a master canner and ask them if it would be safe to can this. Sorry, wish I could be more help. I will say that this was not created for canning, so I would avoid it.

      1. I have canned apple butter in the past so I would guess this would be just fine. Im actually going to can mine.

        1. The Gracious Pantry says:

          Melini – I do not recommend it with this recipe. It was not formulated for canning.

  5. How long does it take to cook out all the liquid?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      😀 – Depends on how much you have in the pot. But figure at least 30-60 minutes.

      Yari – Wonderful!
