Cranberry Apple Butter

A tangy twist on traditional apple butter, this cranberry apple butter will never leave your cheese and crackers, or toast lonely again... they are the perfect pair, and we would never ever want to eat grumpy toast. Cranberry butter makes it happy, always!


  • 6 Apples peeled
  • 1 cup Cranberries chopped
  • ¾ cup Brown sugar
  • ½ cup White sugar
  • ¼ cup Cranberry Pear White Balsamic
  • ¼ cup Bourbon optional
  • ¼ cup Apple cider or juice
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla bean paste or 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick or 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 rind Half of orange


  • Chop peeled apple into 1-2" pieces and roughly chop cranberries and add to a large saucepan with all other ingredients.
  • Stir to combine and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 5-6 hours. Let it simmer, reduce and intensify until it reaches a thick, jam like thickness and apple has cooked down to a puree.
  • Remove orange rind, cinnamon stick and blend mixture using an immersion blender or a blender - be careful of heat coming out of your blender when processing.
  • Hot water process if so desired, or freeze in small portions, or refrigerate for up to 10 days in an airtight container.
