Apple Butter Recipe

Step 1

The thicker skinned, late Summer and Fall apples produce a grainier texture that's best for applesauce.

Step 2

Stir applesauce, sugars, and cider together and cook in a slow oven (325 deg F. ) for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Add spices. Return to oven and cook 1 hour more. Apple butter requires long, slow cooking. (Can also be made in a crock pot. )
