    Dee514's Note:

    I got this recipe about 35 years ago, from the woman that owned the orchards where we used to go apple picking in the fall. I haven't made this in quite a few years, so the cooking time is an estimate (to the best of my memory) could take longer to cook down to a thick spreading consistency.

    1. 1
      Wash and cut apples into small pieces (there should be about 4 quarts).
    2. 2
      In a large pot, place apples and cover with water, and cook until soft.
    3. 3
      Pour cooked apples and liquid into a food mill (or press them through a large hole sieve) which has been placed over a large bowl, to puree them and remove skins and seeds.
    4. 4
      Using the same pot you cooked the apples in, add the cider and bring it to a boil, add apple pulp and sugar; cook until mixture thickens, stirring to prevent scorching.
    5. 5
      Stir in all the spices and continue to cook the apple butter until it is thick enough for spreading.
    6. 6
      Pour into sterilized jars and seal.
