Taste of Tradition

Sep 21, 2015 05:25AM ● Published by Family Features

(Family Features) When the crisp air and festive colors of fall arrive, it’s time to get out and enjoy the best the season has to offer.

From catching a hayride to diving into a pile of crunchy leaves, there are plenty of family activities that can build up a healthy appetite. Some of the tastiest dishes to serve the family at the end of a perfect day feature the warmth and comfort of fall flavors.

Few ingredients say fall like apples, and apple butter is an ideal ingredient for incorporating the rich, traditional flavor of apples and cinnamon into your favorite foods.

Add an extra special flavor to any recipe with Musselman’s Apple Butter. Since 1928, it has been made the old-fashioned way by long, slow simmering apples in kettles with sugar and spices. This classic Pennsylvania Dutch spread is a versatile ingredient just perfect to enhance your favorite family recipes from breakfast to side dishes and dinner to desserts.

Apple Butter Roast Chicken

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Musselman’s Apple Butter
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 whole chicken (3-5 pounds)

    my girlfriend cheated on me should i take her back site did my girlfriend cheat on me

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line roasting pan with foil for easy clean-up.
  2. In small bowl mix together apple butter, chili powder, cumin, paprika and red pepper. (Adjust spice level to personal preference.)
  3. Gently pull skin away from flesh of bird. Scoop a little apple butter mixture in your hand and push it between skin and flesh. Lay skin back down and gently rub so apple butter mixture is coating as much of meat under skin as possible. Repeat with legs, thighs and breasts, trying not to tear skin. Place chicken breast-side down in prepared pan. Stuff 1 thyme sprig under each wing and remaining thyme and garlic cloves inside bird. Sprinkle outer skin with kosher salt.
  4. Bake 20 minutes per pound. Tent with foil after 40 minutes to prevent skin from getting too dark. Let chicken cool/rest for about 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
