Recipe: Chef Ranveer Brar's Apple Butter

October 11, 2022 12:39 IST

Can't get enough of warm, fragrant, bread for breakfast -- be it freshly-baked paav or exotic sour dough?

Good bread doesn't deserve store-bought jam or boring peanut butter.

Try Chef Ranveer Brar's Apple Butter, which is a healthy alternative to the refined sugar concoctions that pass off as jams in grocery stores.

The recipe is simple. Rehydrate apples. Cook them at a low temperature. Wait until most of the water has absorbed.

You will be left with the most delicious, syrup that can be smeared on your morning slices.

Editor's Note: For sugar-free apple butter, use a sugar-free caramel syrup and add a little stevia powder or stevia drops. Each brand of stevia has its own stevia for sugar substitution ratio provided on its packing.

Sugar-free caramel syrups are marketed by coffee companies like Rage or make your own sugar-free caramel syrup using this recipe [external link].

For vegan apple butter, substitute the caramel syrup with any other syrup like a hazelnut syrup or a lemon syrup.
