  1. Joan Farmer says:

    In the Lemon Snowball recipe, is apple butter the same as apple sauce? Thank you!

  2. Hi Joan, no apple butter is different than applesauce, it is cooked longer so becomes sweeter and more carmelized, it is a dark colour. you can find it in health food stores, I like the brand Filsinger, Eden, But check the ingredients you do not one with added sugar, just the apples.
