Want to incorporate more fruits in your child’s diet? How about trying this maple apple butter recipe: it is an easy fruit recipe for kids. They can even help you make it and of course enjoy it. Remember the waffle apple butter snack recipe I shared a while ago? I used a store bought apple butter. I loved it and wondered if I could make one on my own. After all, I had a basket full of apples that were about to rot. My daughter and I went apple picking to two different places in the same week. So we had lots of apples on hand.

What I love about this maple apple butter recipe is that it is easy to make, and you can store it for 3 weeks in the fridge. It’s also a great family gift idea during the holidays. A gift for the hostess or your neighbor. Nothing like homemade treats to please loved ones, right?

How to make this easy fruit recipe for kids

I found this apple butter recipe in a French cookbook: À l’Érable. I did not find an English version. If I do find it, I will let you know, as I love their maple recipes: easy and simple to make!

 Ingredients

  • 5 apples. I used McIntosh ones. The book recommended Cortland.
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of margarine. The book suggested butter, but I prefer margarine as it is lighter.

 Make this maple apple butter recipe:

  • Wash and peel the apples
  • Dice them
  • In a pot, add syrup and margarine (or butter)
  • bring to the boil
  • Add apples
  • Reduce heat. Let is simmer for 30 minutes or until apples are tender
  • Puree the mixture in your(affiliate link) blender
  • Let it cool and store it in resealable containers up to 3 weeks in a fridge

You can eat it with your favorite waffle recipe, crepe recipe or just with bread. I find it is a great snack recipe for kids when they get back to school. It gives them enough energy to wait until dinner and to do their homework.
