Apple Or Pear Butter
Recipe Courtesy North Dakota Wheat Commission

4 medium apples or pears (or a combination of the two)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Peel and core the apples or pears. Chop the fruit and put into
a microwaveable bowl. Stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Cover the bowl
with plastic wrap and then microwave the fruit on high for 12 minutes.
Mash the fruit thoroughly with a potato masher and then microwave it on high,
uncovered, for 12 to 14 minutes more, until it is thick enough to spread
on bread or toast. Serve the butter warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
Makes about 2 cups.
