I am normally not one to shill for another company (Edenfoods being just about the only exception), but I just have to share this family's products with y'all. The company I work for carries most of the fruit butters, and they are fabulous--very fine examples of Pennsylvania Dutch cooking and quality.

The apple butter is incredible. You truly do not have to refrigerate it, and the taste is rich and delicious. I keep some on hand for use in recipes and just to eat on pear or apple slices, or right out of the jar  ;) I also like the blueberry butter, as it is very pure and has a taste just as fabulous as the apple butter.

Now it is true that most of the butters have a bit of orange juice or spice in them, but you can get them with or without sugar (without is sweetened with white grape juice concentrate). I have also visited the production site in Sassamansville and it's okey-doke--very clean and good sanitary procedure.

Check out the site and enjoy :) Highly recommended!

great link. I would love to try the plum butter and use it instead of ketchup. In my opinion, plum would be a fair tomato substitute...haven't seent it done, got to be better than "banana" ketchup.

Janey - yes plums make a pretty good substute from tomato. I make some plumchutney that works fine with meats, eggs and cheese- but somehow no that good with pasta :-(

You could try the No Tomato-Tomato Sauce listed in typebase, I think it's under beets. That stuff is miraculous. Jillthepilllady created and posted it, I believe. Great stuff!

Thanks for providing the link, Brighid.

I have not had apple butter in ages; the last purchase I made was from Eden.

You're welcome :)  While this butter is not made from organic apples, the manufacture is very pure, and the butter is absolutely delicious. You also truly do not have to refrigerate it. I've used it in many recipes, including apple cake, and it always lends superior taste to anything you put it in. Everyone at the company I work for has jars of the butters in the breakroom fridge, it's very popular :) GREAT on rice cakes, btw. Try it with just a little nut butter for a sweet treat.

Yes Brighid it is pretty good the no tomato sauce- I wonder if you can freeze the stuff- I donīt always heve beets- we canīt get canned beets or carrots here- so I have to boil fresh ones if I want to make the sauce.
