Serves 8 jars | Prep Time 45 | Cook Time 240


15 apples, cored and quartered
4 cups apple cider
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups sugar

Place apples and cider into a large stock pot.

Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. The apples will fall apart on their own.

Press the mixture through a food mill to remove the peel and return the liquid to the pot.

Add sugar and spices, bring to a boil again, then reduce heat and simmer on low heat for 3-5 hours, until mixture is the thickness that you prefer.

Store in the refrigerator or process in canning jars per your canner's specifications.

I was on a quest this summer to create the perfect apple butter. After several batches, this is the one I liked the best. Time to pull out the food mill!
