    Default Apple Butter

    Wash and slice firm, tart cooking apples. Do not remove core, seed or peel. Add cider and boil 15 minutes or until soft.

    Press through sieve (you should have about 3 qts. pulp) Gently boil the pulp 1 hour or until it begins to thicken, stirring occasionally.

    Stir in spices and continue cooking slowly 3 hours or until thickened, stirring frequently.

    Pour into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4" head space. Seal.

    Thanks, I loves me some apple butter. Unfortunately the stuff you buy in the store probably contains high fructose corn syrup!

    Excellent recipe! I'm going to try out some for Thanksgiving. One question though, is it better to make a bouquet garni with whole spices to remove them at the end, or use the ground like you suggest?

    Thank You

    That's great! That's quite a very information post. Thanks for your share. And I accept: it is better to make a bouquet garni with whole spices to remove them at the end.

    Never tried doing this Apple Butter before, I would like to ask if, really there is no sugar to add on it?

    Default Apple Butter

    Apple butter is a highly concentrated form of apple sauce, produced by long, slow cooking of apples with cider or water to a point where the sugar in the apples caramelizes, turning the apple butter a deep brown. The concentration of sugar gives apple butter a much longer shelf life as a preserve than apple sauce. Apple butter was a popular way of using apples in colonial America, and well into the 19th century. There is no dairy butter involved in the product; the term butter refers only to the thick, soft consistency, and apple butter's use as a spread for breads. Typically seasoned with cinnamon, cloves and other spices, apple butter may be spread on buttered toast, used as a side dish, an ingredient in baked goods, or as a condiment. Apple butter has also been known to be mixed with vinegar while cooking to provide a small amount of tartness to the usually sweet apple butter.
