About the Apple Butter

Apple Butter is sort of like apple sauce, except it is sweeter, and has more of a buttery texture. Apple Butter is not always available in grocery stores. The best place to purchase some is at your local farmer’s market. O you can always make your own, and Simply Recipes has an easy Apple Butter Recipe – be advised that it is nearly an all day job. Start your batch in the morning if you want to have some prepared in time for supper grilling.

Grilling Tips

Use a medium flame, close the lid, and let your barbecue heat up to temperature. Don’t apply too much sauce the first side, as you will cause flare ups with your barbecue – which just burns your food. Don’t flip too often either… cook one side, flip, cook the other side, and flip one more time just to check for doneness. Grilling really doesn’t take long at all. If you have any other side dishes to prepare, prepare them first and keep them warm if necessary.
