Right after Uncle Mick died I started spending every saturday with Aunt Doris. On one of these saturdays while the boys were at their dad's Aunt Doris and I went to Albany, Oh and bought apples so she could teach me how to make her homemade applebutter. We pealed, cooked and mashed the apples through a seive to make our own applesauce. I now subsitute unsweetened applesauce. I still like to make it the way she taught me to though. It just tastes better when you have the memories to go with what your doing

HI i am making this right now, it seems to be taking awhile to get thick, how long does it take? thanks
