Fruit butters

Fruit butters are made of puréed fruit that's cooked down to a concentrated level and then strained to remove seeds and skin. Unlike jellies, jams, and preserves, fruit butters don't contain pectin.

Apple butter isn't made from real butter. Instead, it's made by cooking apples until the sugar in them caramelizes, turning the sauce a rich brown color. It's used as a spread, and also as a fat-free substitute in many baking recipes.
