Core and cut the apples into chunks, but leave the skin on. Put apples and apple juice into a large sauce pan and boil over meduim heat for 30 minutes.



Set oven to 275°F.



Using a stick blender, blend the apples and skins until smooth. You can also use a food processor or blender, working in batches.



Add the sugar , cinnamon, cloves, allspice, cardamom and salt. Stir to mix well. Pour into a 13x9 inch baking dish, and bake for 2 - 3 hours, stirring every half-hour, or until the butter reaches the consistency you like.

Notes

Having my previous attempt at making apple butter end up causing my arms to fall off from all the constant stirring, I decided to try a different approach. Gleaning methods and recipe basics from a number of different sources, I came up with this easy baked apple butter which requires very little in the way of stirring.
