Musselman's Apple Butter - Review & Recipe

I have been working with Musselman's for a long time, and they are by far some of my favorite products and staples on my pantry shelf.

I was sent this cute kit with Apple Butter, 3 yummy recipes to try and a handcrafted wooden Spurtle.

What is a Spurtle you may ask?  Well I had that question too and I can say that I did not have one of these in my kitchen, but oh I was missing out on something so cool.

This is the Spurtle, it is a scraper, stirrer, flipper etc.  In other words, it's awesome, I've found a new favorite kitchen tool. :)

I think with Fall here, aside from pumpkin, one of the things that most signifies cooler temps and Fall is Apple Butter. For me, that is.

And I've always preferred Musselman's Apple Butter.

So I was sent 3 recipes that sound really good. One of them we won't be trying and that is simply because as you've heard me say many times before, I just don't like mixing fruity stuff with main dishes, it's just a personal preference.

But for those who do like it, check out the Apple Butter Marinade for Chicken.

Now onto the other 2 recipes.  One is already safely stashed away for Thanksgiving, because it sounds SO good and I can't wait to try it.  I'm talking about Sweet Potato Apple Butter Casserole.


The third recipe, I decided I just had to try right away.  We love monkey bread, I make it many times but I had never tried it with Apple Butter.  Oh boy, salivating here.

You have GOT to make this for Fall, it is so delicious, I can't believe I never thought to use Musselman's Apple Butter in it before.
