This is my first post after joining daring cooks.
The September 2010 Daring Cooks’ challenge was hosted by John of Eat4Fun. John chose to challenge The Daring Cooks to learn about food preservation, mainly in the form of canning and freezing. He challenged everyone to make a recipe and preserve it. John’s source for food preservation information was from The National Center for Home Food Preservation.

Here John challenged us to preserve food either using freezer method or with canning. Since i do not have to canning jar i used the regular freezing method.

The original recipe is here


Apples 12

Water 1 cup

Honey 1/2 cup

cinnamon powder 1tbsp

clove powder 1/2 tsp


Wash the apples, remove the stems and core them. I peeled and chopped them at this stage.

Combine the cut apples with water and cook slowly on a slow fire till it turns soft

Mash the apples very well at this stage

Combine this with honey and the spices and simmer on a very slow flame till done

To test the doneness, spoon a small quantity on a plate, if there isn't any liquid separating then the butter is done.

Remove from fire and cool it

I transferred this to zip lock covers and froze it

This is a spread which we all loved. Without any white sugar and with loads of spices this tastes awesome
