I recently received an AWESOME 5-speed Hand Blender from Kitchenaid! I can never have too many kitchen gadgets and was so excited when this one came to my doorstep. It is so sleek and powerful, with tons of attachments. It comes with interchangeable blades, a whisk attachment, chopper attachment, blender pitcher, and storage case. The handle has a great soft grip on it too. The 5-speed Hand Blender is so versatile and can accomplish quite a lot in the kitchen!
How could I feature the hand blender in a Sarah Bakes recipe? Too many ways, I tell you! I decided to go with a simple peach apple butter, showing off the skills of blender, along with delicious summer fruits. I used a combination of ripe peaches and crisp apples, with a little coconut sugar and a touch of cinnamon. Once they were all cooked down, the 5-speed Hand Blender came to the rescue! It was so nice to just blend in the pot, a luxury I’ve never had before. The blades come with guards that snap right now, so there is no scratching the bottom or sides of your pans. A great little bonus feature.
This peach apple butter is yum, yum, yummy. We’ve enjoyed it on pancakes, on toast, on a sandwich with sunflower seed butter, and just by the spoonful. Make up a batch or two and share it with your friends. I’m lovin’ this stuff and I think you will too!
