Here’s an Apple Butter recipe that will get your taste buds going!
APPLE BUTTER: yields about 3 pints
4 pounds apples
4 cups granulated cane juice (or sugar)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
TO PREPARE PULP: Wash apples. Core, peel and quarter apples. Combine and 2 cups water in large saucepot. Simmer until apples are soft. Puree using a food processor or food mill, being careful not to liquefy. Measure 2 quarts apple pulp.
TO MAKE BUTTER: Combine apple pulp, granulated cane juice and spices in a large saucepot. Cook slowly until thick enough to round up on a spoon. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Ladle hot butter into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust two-piece caps. Process 10 minutes a boiling-water canner.
NOTE: If butter becomes too thick, add water or apple juice for desired consistency.
