Washington State Apple Butter

Number of Servings: 24

Apple butter isn't really "butter" at all, but more like a thick preserve. It makes a luscious spread on toast, muffins, crepes, and waffles.

Name: Amount:
Golden delicious apples, cored and cut into eighths 2.50
lemon juice 2 Tbsp
ground cinnamon 0.75 tsp
ground cloves 0.16 tsp
ground mace 0.16 tsp
brown sugar 1 Tbsp

Combine the apples, 3/4 cup water, and the lemon juice in a large nonstick pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high hear. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Drain.

2:

Push the apples through a food mill or strainer to puree and remove skin. Return the applesauce to the pot of water; add the cinnamon,cloves,mace, and brown sugar. Simmer, uncovered, over low heat until the mixture thickens, about 45 to 60 minutes, stirring often.

3:

Cover and refrigerate. Apple butter keeps in the refrigerator for 1 week. Freeze for longer storage.
