The sweetness of apples (and, uh, lots of sugar) tempers the volcanic heat of habanero peppers, resulting in a deliciously sweet-hot jelly, perfect with sharp cheddar cheese.
Sweet Spiced Apple Butter from The Hazel Bloom starts with whole spices, orange juice, and fresh Washington apples.
This apple butter is kickin'!

We continue our Preserving Autumn series with this easy apple butter from Marisa of Food in Jars.
