Homemade apple butter, fresh tasting and not too sweet. Perfect for toast, waffles or scones.
    Ingredients
    Instructions
    1. Wash the apples. If the apples are small you can cook them whole. If larger cut your apples in half. You don’t need to worry about coring or peeling the apples
    2. Place the apples into a large pot and barely cover with water. Simmer on medium heat until apples are soft and mushy.
    3. Strain through a fine colander and/or cheesecloth. Once separated toss out the skins.
    4. Add the apple pulp back into the saucepan. Add the sugar and cinnamon (optional), and reheat until simmering.
    5. Stir the apple butter regularly to help dissolve the sugar. Once the apple butter is hot and the sugar is thoroughly dissolved its time to jar.
    6. When still hot, spoon the hot apple butter into the sterilized jar until its about half inch from the top. Immediately place your sterile metal lid on top.
    7. Holding the jar in a towel to protect your hands from the heat screw the ring onto the jar.
    8. The jars will pop as the apple butter cools sealing the jars. If they fail to seal, place them in the fridge and use within a week.
