Farm Chef recipe: Raspberry and Apple Butter

Raspberry and Apple Butter

Fruit butter is brilliant when you have a glut of fruit that needs using. It keeps in the fridge for a couple of weeks and can also be frozen.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes


  • 8oz raspberries
  • 2 Bramley cooking apples
  • White sugar

TIP Most fruits can be used – just alter the amount of sugar according to sweetness.


  1. Chop the apples then place in a pan with the raspberries and just cover with water.
  2. Bring to the boil and simmer until very well cooked.
  3. Puree with a blender and weigh.
  4. Return the puree to the pan and add half its weight in sugar.
  5. Simmer gently until it thickens to a smooth paste.

Two lovely ways to use apple and raspberry butter:


To make the muffins, use a plain muffin recipe and put half the amount in the muffin cases and add a teaspoon of the fruit butter and then top with the rest of the mixture. Cook as directed. The muffins are great as they are much easier than a “flat pack” piece of cake.

Frozen Yoghurt

Blend together plain or vanilla yoghurt and fruit butter and freeze. Remove from the freezer 45min before serving.
