A kitchen in the fall conjures up memories of apples and warm spices, pumpkin and squashes. Many folks make their own apple butter at home, but there are actually great store-bought varieties available in most supermarkets around the country. So we thought instead of focusing on how to make apple butter today, we'd think about ways to use it in the kitchen. Sure, there's nothing better than slathering a dollop of apple butter onto warm toast or biscuits in the morning, but it can actually be an integral ingredient in fall cooking and baking. Here are a few recipes we're excited to try: Savory:Brown Sugar and Bourbon Ribs - Epicurious • Sweet and Spicy Chicken Thighs - A Southern Fairtytale • Mini Vegetable Casserole Topped with a Duck Egg and Apple Butter - Food Network • Ham, Cheddar, and Apple Butter Sandwiches - Epicurious • Apple Butter Glazed Ham - BC Living Sweet:Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie - Food Network • Apple Butter Spice Cake - Eating Well • Apple Butter Ice Cream with Ginger Chocolate Ganache - Food and Wine • Apple Butter Bars - Sidehill Farms • Apple-Butter-Filled Gingerbread Cookies - Los Angeles Times Related: Apples Galore!
