How to Make Apple butter


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large pot. Heat on low or 2nd to lowest setting on oven. Don’t let it bubble; that means the bottom is burning! Stir every 20 min or so. Cook until reduced but about 1/6 -1/4 and to the desired thickness. Pour hot into sterilized canning jars
