Pennsylvania-Dutch Apple Butter
I made this about 10 years ago. It was good, but then why did I only make it once???
6 1/2 cups chopped peeled Granny Smith apple (about 2 pounds)
1 1/4 cups apple cider
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Combine apples and cider in a large saucepan or Dutch oven.
Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 40 minutes or until tender.
Place apple mixture in a blender or food processor; process until smooth.
Combine puréed apple mixture, sugar, and remaining ingredients in pan; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 25 minutes or until mixture is thick, stirring frequently.
Store butter in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 2 months.
