Haw~Apple Butter

August 23, 2010

Matt was fortunate to get a nice bunch of hawberries freshly foraged by his good friend and fellow canner Ben.  These berries come from Manotulin Island further north of us by about 4 hours.  What a score!

Once stemmed and washed we had about 4 cups of hawberries to work with and here is what we did with them.


  • 4 cups hawberries
  • 3 tart apples (Granny Smiths work well)
  • 1 cup water
  1. Place hawberries and apples in a sauce pan and simmer until soft
  2. Put through a food mill discarding skins and seeds
  3. Placing back in a sauce pan add an equal amount of sugar to hawberry/apple pulp
  4. Boil until setting point
  5. Pour into hot sterilized jars leaving a 1/4″ headspace; add sterilized snaps and lids to finger tip tight
  6. Process in hot water bath for 10 minutes
  7. Remove lid from hot water bath and let stand for 5 minutes before removing

Put up Total:

  • 1 x 250mL wide mason jar
  • 1 x 125mL regular mason jar
