How to make it

  • Peel and core the apples, then cut them into 1 inch chunks. (Don't worry about making them perfectly sized). Place the apples in a large, nonreactive saucepan and pour the cider over them. Cover the pot and cook for about 30 minutes over low heat or until the apples are soft.
  • 2. Cool the mixture until it is only warm to the touch. Divide it into two batches and puree each in the bowl of a food processor or blender. (At this point, you will have an unsweetened applesauce, which makes excellent baby food).
  • 3. Pour all of the pureed fruit into a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish, spread evenly, sprinkle with the apple pie spice, and stir well. Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for 2 to 3 hours or until your apple butter is deep brown and thick. Stir the puree every 20 minutes. Cool the apple butter and then scoop it into a clean jar with a sealable lid. It will keep for up to 2 months in your refrigerator. Spread it on toast, crackers, or sandwiches. Makes 1-3/4 cups.
