Savory Apple Butter
by Kate Heyhoe
The ideal accompaniment to roast pork, turkey and rustic artisanal breads.
Simply peel and core enough apples to fill your pressure cooker half-way to two-thirds full (cut the apples into large chunks). Toss in a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and about 1/4 cup water (or the minimal liquid recommended by for your cooker). Then add a dash or two to taste of sweet spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, etc. (add just enough to give it a hint of spice). Bring the pressure cooker to high pressure and maintain the heat for 4 minutes. Use the natural release method. As soon as you c an safely open the pressure cooker, stir in about 1-2 teaspoons of chopped fresh rosemary, and if you want it sweeter, stir in some honey. Let the flavors mingle for a few hours or refrigerate overnight. Freeze or can for use throughout the year.
