We use our Ninja Blender for a lot of different things. When we first bought it we used it mainly for fruit smoothies and frozen drinks but since we’ve discovered that it’s really great for a lot of things. We’ve also found that since discovering our family has a lot of food allergies, the Ninja Blender is especially helpful for making things we would otherwise spend a lot of extra money on. One of our favorite things to make is homemade, natural Apple Butter which is great on toast or even pancakes! It’s much healthier than jelly or syrup that is full of high fructose corn syrup and other not so good for you ingredients. You will love how easy it is to make apple butter!

Instructions To Make Apple Butter:
This Ninja blender recipe to make apple butter is super easy.
Begin by peeling and removing the core from your apples. Cut them into thick slices and place in a saucepan with 1/4 cup of water and the raisins. Cook over medium heat until softened.
After the apples are soft and the raisins are plump place them into the Ninja Blender with the remaining ingredients.
Blend until smooth.
Transfer the apple butter to a mason jar and store in the refrigerator. Use it within 2 weeks of making.
