Homemade Apple Butter
How to Make Homemade Apple Butter
- Wash apples, cut out any bad spots. Cut into quarters or eighths. In a large enamel kettle put enough water to cover bottom of pot. Add cut up apples and cook til tender. Run cooked apples through a food mill or a fruit and vegetable strainer attached to electric mixer.
- Mix all dry ingredients together thoroughly. Add to applesauce.
- Cook on top of stove SLOWLY!!!!. Do not boil. Not a good idea to walk away and leave it, as it will scorch. Cook for 90 minuets. Spoon into clean hot jars and seal. Make sure lids are very hot. Yummy.
- Note: If apples are sweet, you can reduce the sugar to 4 lbs.
