Chai Apple Butter

Yields 1 cup


10 medium apples, peeled and chopped

8 oz Dona Masala Chai 

1 T  lemon juice


Combine apples, chai, sugar, and lemon juice in a large saucepan. Place mixture over medium-high heat, and cook, stirring often, until apples are broken down, about 45 minutes. Mash any large pieces of apple with large wooden spoon to help them break down.


Reduce heat to medium. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until apples are completely broken down and butter is very thick and dark, about 1.5- 2 hours. Remove from the heat, and let stand to cool.

 

Use for ice cream, toast, oatmeal, pancakes & desserts.
