What’s the Difference Between Stewed Apple and Apple Butter?

Stewed apple is the star dessert of an Irish childhood, well along with Irish Bread Pudding! Apples were one ingredient that were easy to get hold of – and because they were naturally sweet you could cook them for dessert or to eat with roast pork without having to add any other ingredient. Apple Butter is effectively the same, except that the apples are cooked long and slow until they turn a burnished gold.
