Apple Butter Recipe  

Posted by Johnny

We went away Thursday and got back today. While we were gone I came across a great Apple Butter recipe. I am not crazy about Apple Butter but John absolutely loves it. I thought this is a great time with all the apples in season to make some.

6 -7 pounds tart apples unpeeled and quartered
3 Cups Water
3-1/2 Cups Sugar (can be adjusted)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cinnamon stick (3 inches)

(I will probably also add nutmeg even though the recipe does not call for it.)


In a 6-8 quart pot bring apples and water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the apples are tender. Press cooked apples through a colander or food mill. Discard peels.

Return pureed apples to the pot. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered, stirring frequently, until the consistency is very thick and the color is dark brown, about 8 hours. Freeze in containers.

Yield: 4-6 Cups

I can't wait to try this one out!

Hey! I haven't tried the apple butter because I never had the patience to cook it down. That has changed this year tomato and spaghetti sauces take about 8 hours to cook down!

Have Fun!
