DIRECTIONS

  • Cut apples in quarters (skins, stems and seeds can stay on).
  • Place in medium saucepan and add water to cover apples completely.
  • Add cloves and apple cider vinegar.
  • Bring to boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Cook apples until soft, 15-20 minutes.
  • Drain water from pan. Transfer to a medium strainer or food mill. Push through strainer or mill, back into saucepan. You should have the consistency of applesauce. Discard stems, skins, seeds and cloves.
  • Add brown sugar and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for 2 hours to reduce consistency.
  • Add room-temperature butter and stir until butter is melted.
  • Pour into separate container and chill before serving.
