Apple Butter YUM

Asked September 12, 2019, 6:12 PM EDT

The apple butter recpie I used called for the apple butter to be processed in a hot water bath for 20 minutes, I accidently forgot the apple butter and it boiled in the hot water bath for 35 minutes. Will this hurt the apple butter?

It is not a safety issue but might effect the quality of your butter. Wouldn't worry about it. The texture and flavor might have changed a little but it will be safe.
