Apple-Fig Butter

  • Prep Time 0:10
  • Cook Time 0:30
  • Estimated Cost $10.00

This easy fruit butter is the perfect alternative to jam or jelly, and is absolutely perfect on Black Pepper-Sage Biscuits. The figs give sweet apples the earthy accent they beg for. Try whisking this together with a little balsamic vinegar and reducing over a low flame to make an unbeatable glaze for grilled chicken.


  • 3 Gala, Fuji, or Red Delicious apples, peeled, cored and chopped $1.50
  • 8 dried Black Mission figs, stems removed, chopped $4
  • 1/2 cup sugar Pantry
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg $1.50 for 1 oz.
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon $1.50 for 1 oz.
  • 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar $1.50 for 12 oz.


  1. Combine all ingredients with 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Cook covered, over medium heat for 30 minutes or until fruit is very soft.
  2. Puree in a food processor or using an immersion blender until smooth.
  3. Allow to cool slightly and serve as you would jam, with bread, toast, or biscuits. Store leftovers in an airtight container with a lid (a glass jar works well).
  4. Makes about 1 1/2 cups apple-fig butter.
