And for those of you who’ve never had it before, here’s a little background info… Apple butter is a highly concentrated form of apple sauce, produced by long, slow cooking of apples with cider or water to a point where the sugar in the apples caramelizes, turning the apple butter a deep brown. The concentration of sugar gives apple butter a much longer shelf life as a preserve than applesauce. Apple butter was a popular way of using apples in colonial America, and well into the 19th century. The term “butter” refers to the thick, soft consistency, and apple butter’s use as a spread for breads. Typically seasoned with cinnamon, cloves, lemon juice and other spices, apple butter may be spread on buttered toast, used as a side dish, an ingredient in baked goods, or as a condiment.
Alpine Chicken is Chicken slow cooked with ham or Canadian bacon, cheese, noodles, and seasonings. It’s a rich, hearty, southern dish that can typically be pretty fattening. But I came across this fantastic recipe that manages to still deliver all “YUM factor”, but with a lot fewer calories and fat! This dish is a must-do!
