Summer Apple Butter is made from “Summer Rambo” apples. “Summer Rambo” for an apple name, really? Nope, not kidding. Summer Rambo apples originated in France and are one of the oldest varieties of apples. These apples come from a local orchard with over 70 varieties of apples. “Summer Rambo” was selected for Aunt Becky’s Apple Butter because of it’s sweet-tart taste, similar to a Honeycrisp apple. The resulting honey-colored Apple Butter tastes like ripe apples.
