I know that oven cooking apple butter is nothing new, but to my husband it was. His grandma use to make hers in a big kettle. So when he saw me make it this way, he said "you can't make it that way". Well guess what? I can, and I did. He dubbed this recipe "as good as grandma's". Hope you enjoy this too.
