I’ll admit, I selected this product primarily because it was the only apple butter in the store, but I was happy enough with it to not make a trip to another store for more options.
I liked the short ingredient list (ingredients: fresh apples and apple cider), how the label touted “No Sugar Added” and “No Preservatives“, and the price ($2.99) wasn’t too shabby either.
We’ve gotten in the habit of writing the date we opened pantry-like items on the lids and containers. I always forget when I opened something and I get paranoid of spoiled food easily.
I decided to break from one of my staple breakfasts (nut butter on Great Harvest toast) with a lil compromise – a mostly-Trader-Joe’s-Valencia-Peanut-Butter-covered slice of Great Harvest Flax Oat Bran with a smaller broken off piece covered with the Kime’s Apple Butter. I also had some Fresh Market coffee (1/2 Breakfast Blend and 1/2 Summer Breeze) with some Morningstar “sausage.”
The apple butter was way better than I expected. It was sweet without being too sweet and I thought the texture was nice and smooth. I was looking forward to oatmeal for tomorrow’s breakfast, but may have to switch over to more apple butter toast.
I hear Kime’s Cider Mill makes a pumpkin butter, too. I’ll have to look for that in the fall…it sounds delish!
