Fruit Butter is a preserve, much the same as Jams and Jellies, which once cooked to a paste has a dense, smooth, and creamy consistency and an excellent accompaniment for toast, scones, and bread.  However, fruit butter is much lower in sugar and sweeteners.  Fruit butter is an old concept, which has been in use, at least, since the 1700’s.
