Habits that we have as adults often started in our childhood. This includes the good, the bad, the ugly, even our eating habits. The more children are exposed to different kinds of foods when they are young, the more likely their palate will be broad as adults.
A great example is my husband. His mother only fed him foods she liked which is typical American type foods – hamburgers, steaks, etc. Where I on the other will eat pretty much anything – seafood, sushi, Chinese food, foods my husband will not touch with a ten-foot pole.
Even our snacking habits are shaped during our childhood. I love pretty much any kind of fruit or vegetable whereas my husband is pretty selective. To save my children from their father’s sad, sad little palate I encourage them to try different foods and make healthy choices. They already have a much wider palate than their father which allows them to make smarter snacking choices.
So I decided to make a Super Easy Apple Butter Recipe with some of the applesauce I have on hand. It was hard to resist not to. They love eating this on pretty much any kind of bread and it’s a great after school snack too.
This apple butter is a super easy, shortcut way to make a tasty mom approved homemade apple butter. It’s quick to make too because lord knows things are always hectic around here with two active boys.
To make this delicious Apple Butter all you do is throw some applesauce in a pot with some spices and stir every few minutes. In 30 minutes, you will have a spread that will have your house smelling amazing. It will make you wish it was Fall!
