Notes

The Samuel Adams Apple Butter can be served with the Samuel Adams Boston Lager Brined and Grilled Pork Rack.

This recipe was developed by Chef Vinson Petrillo on behalf of Samuel Adams.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 Cups Samuel Adams Boston Lager
  • 3 onions, sliced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 8 Tablespoons unsalted butter, kept cold
  • 2 pinch of Penzy apple pie seasoning
  • 6 Honeycrisp apples

Directions

Gather a cast-iron pan or a heavy skillet that can be used on the grill.

Peel and core the apples, cut them in half, then cut each half into four pieces. This should result in a total of eight pieces per apple. Peel and slice the onions evenly.

Add the onions, apples, apple pie seasoning and a pinch of salt to the pan, and sweat them until translucent. Once the onions are translucent, add the Samuel Adams Boston Lager and reduce by half. Once reduced, take the mixture off the heat and slowly start adding the cold butter, stirring with a whisk. Add 1 tablespoon of butter at a time, taking caution not to break the sauce. 

Apple Butter Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Apple Butter Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
