      Bring to boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Cook apples until soft, 15-20 minutes.

      I think what I love about this recipe the most is it doesn't make TO much, just enough that DH and I will have fresh apple butter for us, so need to seal and go through all of that prep work - specially since I don't have the supplies here. Very nice blend of flavors and fresh apple taste. Came out smooth and fresh tasting, and not to sweet. I've always loved apple butter but had never made it myself - now I know I can.
