Recipe by chefmick

better than mom's. I use golden delicious or red wine apples. These are just my favorites. You can use which ever type is your favorite. For something different you can also melt 12 oz of cinnamon red-hot candies into the apple butter. don't use an aluminum pot for this or your apple butter will taste weird. Use enameled pots for best results.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pare and quarter apples.
  2. cook until very tender with a little water in a cover pot. (I use a dutch oven).
  3. Puree cooked apples. Measure 30 cups into roaster pan.
  4. while still warm stir in rest of ingredients. mix well.
  5. bake at 325 Degrees F for 3.5 to 5 hours. baking time depends on type of apple used and how fast the sauce thickens.
  6. apple butter has a tendency to cook faster around the edges of the pan so STIR OFTEN.
  7. when apple butter is medium thickness, pour into hot sterilized glass jars. Seal immediately.
