How to make it

  • Combine the applesauce, sugar, and the cinnamon in a saucepan. Simmer over VERY low heat stirring frequently to prevent burning. Partially cover the pan, if necessary, to prevent "spluttering."
  • In about an hour, the applesauce will have become darker and thicker. Continue cooking over low heat. The apple butter will be ready when it will mound up or maintain a peak on the spoon.
  • The apple butter can also be cooked using the slow cooker, and you don't have to watch it as carefully so that it doesn't burn. The apple butter will not become as dark in color as commercially-purchased apple butter, but it will taste as good! When I make this again, I'll try using dark brown sugar instead of white to see if that improves the color a bit.

    I think the dark brown sugar would add a really nice touch, as I love the flavor of molasses. Have you ever made peach butter?
