Apple Butter

Apple Butter

Ingredients

  • Apples
  • 4 cups Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Cloves

Cooking Directions

  1. This is the apple butter recipe from the Ball Blue Book of Preserving. I tweak it just a little bit to work with what I am making.
  2. Turn your apples to applesauce. Core them, peel them if necessary (I don’t, I think it is a waste of time) put them in a pot with a cup or two of water or apple juice at the bottom and simmer down into applesauce.
  3. Then take 2 quarts (4 cups) applesauce and mix with sugar, cinnamon and cloves and simmer down until thick enough to round up on the spoon, or desired consistency.
  4. Can.
