Becky Tank


This is the best apple butter ever and the peels give it alot more flavor and you don't even know their in there.

pinch tips: Basic Knife Skills


10 Half pints




10 large
(about 5 pounds) tart apples
2 c
apple cider
3-5 c
sugar ( i use at least 1 cup brown to every 2 cups white)
3 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp
ground allspice
1/2 tsp
ground nutmeg

Directions Step-By-Step

Wash, core, and quarter the apples. No need to peel them.
Cook the apples slowly in the cider until tender. Blend in food processor until smooth. You should have 12-14 cups of pulp.
Add 3 cups of sugar, then more sugar, if needed, to attain the desired sweetness. Add the spices and mix thoroughly.
Place in slow cooker or 350 degree oven for 6-8 hours, stirring often. Test for desired thickness by spooning a small amount onto a cold plate. If no liquid oozes around the edges, then its thick enough.
Ladle into sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
Process in a boiling water-bath canner for 10 minutes, or 15 minutes for pints. Can also be frozen.
