Amish Apple ButterFrom bondc 9 years ago
How to make it
- Cut apples into eighths (no need to peel or core them), and put them in the bottom of a large, heavy pot. Cover with apple cider, bring to a boil, then turn the heat down and simmer until the apples are mushy.
- Run the apples through a food mill to remove the peels and seeds, then dump back into the pot with the juices. Add the sugar, bring to a boil again, then put on the lowest heat and simmer. Stir every half hour or so for the first couple of hours. As it thickens, stir it more frequently. When the apple butter is the proper, spreadable consistency, flavor liberally with cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.
- Can as you would jelly.

I remember stirring an iron pot over a wood fire with my Great Aunt Mabel, making apple butter. I'll never forget my first forage in her apple orchard in West Virginia and that sneaky taste of the forbidden fruit...a thoroughly unripe green apple. ...morenotyourmomma in South St. Petersburg loved it
