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

How to Make "Keep that loving peeling" Apple Butter


  1. Wash, core, and quarter the apples. No need to peel them.
  2. Cook the apples slowly in the cider until tender. Blend in food processor until smooth. You should have 12-14 cups of pulp.
  3. Add 3 cups of sugar, then more sugar, if needed, to attain the desired sweetness. Add the spices and mix thoroughly.
  4. 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.
  5. Ladle into sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
  6. Process in a boiling water-bath canner for 10 minutes, or 15 minutes for pints. Can also be frozen.
